Starting from the car park at the end of Tharwa Sandwash Road, Tennent, this walk takes you to the foreshore of Murrumbidgee River and back, via a fire trail. A straight flat fire trail to the sand riverbank and equipped with picnic tables, this walk can make for a great all-around family trip. Take a swim in the warm waters of the river, then have a big picnic as you enjoy the relaxing aura of the riverbed. There are also canoe entry points if you want to challenge the stream. As you’re resting after all that action, keep an eye out for peculiar birds such as Tawny Frogmouths. The area is known to contain around 200 species of them. Don’t forget to leave your fishing rod at home, as it is forbidden to fish here. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
