The Rock

The township of The Rock is located on the Olympic Way 25km south of Wagga Wagga and 96 km north of Albury. The character of the town is derived from its wide park-like main thoroughfare and the visual domination of the unusual mountain of rock that rises from the plain and lies immediately south of the town. In the main street (Urana Street) silky oak trees were planted soon after World War I as an avenue of honour, one for each soldier in the district who served his country. The avenue was opened in 1920. In later years when the silky oaks required replacing, hardier kurrajong trees were planted. The Rock was at one time an important rail junction until the decline of the branch line. Now with a population of 900 The Rock is steadily moving forward due to its close proximity to the largest inland city in New South Wales, Wagga Wagga.

The Rock: Where To Go / Sightseeing

The Rock Nature Reserve


Soaring 364 metres above the surrounding district, The Rock Nature Reserve is one of the most iconic landmarks in the Riverina. A magnificent place to explore, with picnic tables, barbecues and shelter, water, toilets and a walking / cycle path from the nearby town.

Take the family and find a relaxing picnic spot, or if you're feeling energetic take a hike to the top for spectacular views. For the more adventurous, have a go at rock climbing or abseiling with friends.

The Rock Hill Nature Reserve is home to native fauna and flora so make sure to bring your camera and a pair of binoculars when you visit.
