Starting the walk at McLean Beach, follow the path along the banks of the Edward River past magnificent red gum trees and sandy beaches. Head past the hospital, police station, and medical centre to the Ute on the Pole. This WB Holden ute was erected in 2000 to celebrate Deniliquin’s famous ute muster.
Continue under the National Bridge built in 1969. A diversion at the back of the Peppin Heritage Centre brings you to the Mosaic Ute and the Long Paddock sculpture called ‘Shod’.
Pass the sculptures and head down the ramp to the Island Sanctuary. Keep an eye for out for the birds, kangaroos and beautiful trees. Organise a tour with Yarkuwa Indigenious Knowledge Group.
Walk through to the river side of the sanctuary and continue past the first town water supply tower and remnants of where the steam-powered engine was.
Finally you enter the Murray Valley Regional Park.
