About Deniliquin

Deniliquin – Ute Capital of the world

Deniliquin is situated on the Edward River, an oasis of green on the edge of the Riverina plain, which stretches northwards in what is the flattest land on earth.

The town is in the centre of Riverina sheep station country and on the fringe of the world's largest redgum forest, where bird and wildlife abound.

The natural attractions of the region and the well developed network of forest trails offer you the chance to free your adventurous spirit.

The Festival's colour theme this year is pink and therefore organiser's thought it apt and very worthy to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) at this year's Muster.
