Murra Murra and Bendee Downs cover around 87,000 hectares of land, located about 130 kilometres east of Cunnamulla. The properties were acquired by the Indigenous Land Corporation and since July 2000 has been managed by the Kooma Traditional Owners Association Incorporated as an Indigenous Protected Area(IPA). The IPA listing means that there is funding to pay a Ranger who cares for the land and also acts as a guide for visitors.

Self contained campers are invited to camp on the land, there are no facilities available so you'll need to BYO toilet and leave no trace.

The old Murra Murra homestead, a beautiful old Queenslander house with wide shady verandahs on all sides, has been set up as a training centre. While the fabric of the house is old, it can sleep up to 20 people and includes a large kitchen, and a boardroom where the Kooma Traditional Owners Association meets to discuss management of the land. 

Murra Murra and Bendee Downs has great landscape diversity, including clay-pans that become lakes in the wet season, box tree swamps, and areas of brigalow, mulga, gidgee and spinifex. There are over 250 lakes, hundreds of types of frog, known for the healing properties in their skin secretions, koalas, and many kinds of bat and other creatures that live in the trees.

The landscapes and even the colours of the rocks change dramatically from season to season; a carpet of purple and white flowers appears after rain. Pieces of petrified wood can be found, formed through a process similar to the creation of opal, which is found throughout the South-West region.

The properties cover ecologically important creeks and wetlands that form part of the Murray Darling System, including the Nebine Creek and a permanent waterhole 4 kilometres long behind Murra Murra homestead which was never known to be dry, that is until two years ago. In Nebine Creek are fish such as carp, catfish and yellowbelly, as well as crayfish. Bush foods that grow on the properties include bush limes, wild oranges, passionfruit and bush bananas.
