Coach and horses campground PAROO-DARLING NP
It’s such a pretty spot by the majestic river red gums along the Darling River. We did a bit of fishing, but didn’t manage to catch anything – lucky we brought plenty of supplies with us.”
In a delightful, shady spot next to a bend in the Darling, the Coach and Horses campground offers a bush camp with views up and down the river.
Spend the day exploring the river in a kayak or canoe or enjoy a spot of fishing. If you’re walking along the banks of the river, be sure to keep an eye out for the local birds.

The middle of nowhere, the centre of everywhere
The first recorded burial, though unmarked, in what is now the Wilcannia cemetery happened in November 1866, when the remains of a man, lost in the bush 4 months before, were interred. His name was not known, the body was dressed in a striped cotton shirt, plaid vest, moleskin trousers and a brown coat, no money or papers were found in the pockets.
In 1881 the arrangements for the cemetery were formalised and trustees for each denomination appointed. Along with the traditional protestant and catholic appointments, Louis Phillips, George Myers and Henry Emanuel Cohen were appointed as trustees for the Jewish portion. There are no known graves in this section, the far south west corner.
