One of the newest of the National Parks in New South Wales, Yanga has much to offer the visitor, especially those who like to fish. There are numerous spots along the Murrumbidgee River to try.
The park offers much more than fish, however, as its history dates back millenia. Generations of Aboriginal families lived here, leaving tgraces of their habitation with shell middens and bark carved from trees to make canoes.
This peaceful lake has provided sustenance for many years to the indigenous people for many thousands of years. There are places to picnic on the foreshore, at the Yanga Homestead precinct, there are exploratory walks and bird watching spots to enjoy, other animals may saunter by as well.
Note: please do not feed the animals here as they are wild, they also know better as to what constitutes a good diet for themselves and how to find it without any human help.
Safe swimming, boating and fishing can be done at Regatta Beach. There are also public toilet facilities here, a yacht club, a ski club and scenic BBQ spots.
There are guided tours available of the parts of the park. Be sure not to miss the Yanga Homestead precinct in the park where you can join one of the tours. There are also specially developed audio tours available, you can pick up a audio hand held if you cannot join one of the scheduled tours.
