McCaughey Bicentennial Park


McCaughey Bicentennial Park is an original natural spring fed waterhole, which existed as part of North Yanco Station - one of the pastoral holdings owned by the late Sir Samuel McCaughey.

In 1987, Leeton Shire Council undertook the project and transformed the area into a tranquil aquatic reserve, a haven for swans, geese, ducks and other native waterbirds. The site now includes a statue in memory of Sir Samuel McCaughey who showed that irrigation was possible on his property North Yanco Station.
