wadbilliga national park
West of Cobargo is the Wadbilliga National Park. Along the picturesque 20km drive is evidence of the early farms established by the pioneers of the district.
The most spectacular features of the park are probably Tuross Falls (35 metres) and the 5 km Tuross River Gorge. Both are on the western side of the park. The falls can be viewed from a 3 km walking track which departs from the Cascades camping area. From Cobargo follow Bourkes Rd through Yowrie and on to Lake Creek Camping Area by the Wadbiliga River. Several kilometres beyond this point is the highly scenic Wadbiliga Crossing Picnic Area. All three locations have toilets and picnic-barbecue facilities.

Brogo Dam is a bass fishing 'hot spot' and canoeing capital. It is south of Cobargo and is reached by turning west off the main Princes highway.
It offers picnic facilities and a ramp from which to launch your canoe or rowboat.
You can hire canoes to explore the dam and gain access to remote pockets of bush, teaming with wildlife. This is really getting away from it all!
