The town of Balranald is located where the Sturt Highway crosses the Murrumbidgee River in a remote, semi-desert area.
Although it is part of New South Wales, Balranald receives Victorian television stations, with a range of Sydney and Melbourne newspapers available.
Balranald was featured heavily in 2010-2015 Australian tourism ads, displaying the natural flora of the region with over 30 sub species of shrubs native to Balranald and its surrounds.
It is a perfect stopping point for people traveling between Adelaide and Sydney as it is half way.
Points of interest in this part of the Riverina are:
- Yanga National Park
- Euston Courthouse
- Murrumbidgee National Park
- Ben Scott Memorial Bird Trail
- Balranald Heritage Trail
- Outback Geo Adventure Tours
- Balranald Discovery Centre
Balranald should certainly be part of your plans when next visiting My Riverina.
