Murray River National Park covers approximately 13 000 hectares and is made up of three separate sections of land - Katarapko, Lyrup Flats and Bulyong Island. The park was proclaimed in 1991 to conserve the unique Murray wetlands and their flora and fauna, such as the threatened Regent Parrot, Golden Bell Frog, Murray Cod and Murray Darling Carpet Python. The park provides great recreational opportunities for visitors.

Escape and enjoy the tranquil setting of the park by bushwalking, canoeing, camping, houseboating, fishing or just relaxing on the banks of the river. Natural and human impacts are causing serious problems for the River Murray. When water is available, flooded wetlands and flood plains kick start a boom of life with new plant growth, breeding cycles and increased food availability. With decreased flow down the river, the park is facing issues such as stressed vegetation and barriers for fish movement.
