On your list of things to do, add a stroll or jog along the riverside walk.
The riverside walk is a great place to stop and revive, view the river scenery,
listen to the wonderful bird life and see the the most beautiful sunrise & sunset.
The riverside is a great spot to meet friends and gather away from home.
Another must do activity is the Sandytown River Cruise - a wonderful refresher out on the water
and an opportunity to enjoy the Balonne River scenery.
Children's play grounds, seating choices, picnic tables and BBQ's are scattered along the riverside park.
Access points to the cement footpath are along The Terrace.
Insight into the history of the Balonne Shire, the people and communities,
is available at the Visitor Information Centre. Books and articles available.
Check out the History tour running on Tuesday mornings from the VIC.
