West Wyalong

The twin towns of Wyalong and West Wyalong retain a feel of the bygone gold era, with many historic buildings, and old-style shop facades. Situated at the intersection of the Newell and Mid Western Highways, 154 kilometres north of Wagga Wagga and 139 kilometres south-west of Parkes, West Wyalong rose from the plains following the discovery of gold in 1893.

The town pays tribute to its gold-mining history with parks and museums including the Wyalong Museum, Beckett's Pioneer Farm and the 25 metre Poppet Head structure above a mineshaft. Explore the Green Corridor walking track that leads to the original town of Wyalong and its collection of historic buildings.

Visit the nearby historic bush towns of Tallimba, Ungarie, Weethalle, Barmedman and Mirrool. Stop at Lake Cowal, a resting place for migratory birds or explore the Wedding Mountains once a hideaway for bushrangers.

Get into the mood and take a look at the fun packed programme of events for the October 2015.

West Wyalong's annual 'In the West' Fest will take place on the fourth weekend in October with the theme of Athens. The Greek influence is strong in the minds of those who remember the Cafe's in West Wyalong during the 50s, 60s and 70s or the television sitcom Acropolis Now.
