Kinchega National Park


The park, covering an area of 44’000 hectares was once part of the Kinchega – Kars pastoral lease held by the Hughes family since 1870. At its grandest, the property extended from Menindee to Broken Hill and covered an area of over 800’000 hectares. In 1967 the Kinchega section of the then Kars lease was dedicated as a national park.

The Menindee area was and still is a local point fo Baakantji and Ngiyampaa people because of the close proximity to the Darling River, Menindee Lakes and the Talyawalka – Anabranch system. The park is co-managed by the NSW NPWS and the Menindee Elders Council.
