Your hospitality centre for 'outbacktracking' to untrampled, accessible rivers and lakes, national parkes, fishing and peaceful camping. Consider staying a few days in our region. We're a friendly town and enjoy hosting visitors. We invite you to break your journey here, rest, check your vehicle and equipment, and explore.
In town you can walk the 'crooked mile' of our unique main street, originally a bullock track woven around gold diggings and old tree stumps. Also visit the True Blue Mining Poppet Head, Beckett's Pioneer Farm, the Aboriginal Artifacts Shop, the Museum and the award winning Green Corridor walking track leading to the original town of Wyalong with its collection of historic buildings clustered along the Newelll Highway.
For memorable day trips, explore our historical bush villages of Tallimba, Weethalle, Barmedman and Mirrool, each offering a special experience in the bush. Visit the village of Ungarie, on the way to Lake Cargelligo, an oasis on the Lachlan River. Following the Lachlan up-stream to Condobolin, you'll find great camping and fishing spots.
