About Us

Welcome to your Virtual Tour Guide for Macquarie River Trails.

This intiative is coordinated by the not-for-profit organisation RiverSmart Australia Ltd. Visit our web site to find out about us and the other things we do – www.riversmart.org.au

Here you will find just a few of the nearly 150 attractions, events and points of interest within the valley of the Macquarie River in the heart of NSW – a stone’s throw from Sydney, the central coast and the Canberra region.

The eleven trail themes provide options ranging for water sports, nature-based drawcards, local produce, cultural heritage, cycling, fishing, bird watching and great coffee..and lots, lots more.

The Macquarie River Trails are nestled between – and link – established touring routes focussed around the Warrumbungles, Mudgee wines, Lightning Ridge, the Darling River Run, the Cobb & Co Trail and the Animals on Bikes trail.

It plugs a geographic gap and adds new and exciting opportunities to build on the region’s most popular established tourism product, Taronga Western Plains Zoo.
