town of Wentworth lies at the junction of the Murray and Darling rivers. Wentworth retains many historic buildings, including the Old Gaol, the Courthouse, the Convent and the Customs House (now a private residence).
Junction Island is the name given to the sandy shoal between the two rivers. A canoe tree is located nearby and the area is a nature reserve, rich in flora, wildlife and birdlife.
At Buronga, the Australian Inland Botanic Gardens feature arid land plantings. The gardens are open every day but once a month can be toured by tractor train. Mungo National Park lies about 150km northeast of Wentworth. The park features the Walls of China, spectacular sand dune formations, and several graded walks.
