Breeza

Breeza is a small village located about 45 kilometres south east of Gunnedah on the Kamilaroi Highway. The aboriginal name for Breeza means "one hill".

The village overlooks the rich fertile Liverpool Plains and this diverse farming area produces many and varied crops throughout the year. When in season, the fields of sunflowers, sorghum, canola, wheat and cotton provide a picturesque vista across the sweeping plains.

Breeza was settled in 1848 by Andrew Lang. Old folk say that Bushranger Ben Hall was born at Breeza, he was in fact born near Maitland, but his father, Ben Hall Snr worked on Breeza Station at one time. A mural 'Ben Hall's Wall' stands in the heart of Breeza to commemorate Ben Hall's final years set against "those wild colonial days" of yesteryear.

Within the village, just off the Kamilaroi Highway, is a small park/rest area. The park has picnic tables and public toilets. It's an ideal spot to pull up, take a break and stretch your legs.

Breeza: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Ben Hall's Wall


This memorial is to commemorate the birth of Ben Hall.

Ben's family lived in the Breeza area and worked on Breeza Station. This fact is acknowledged by old Breeza residents who remember 'Ben Hall's Hut', used for many years as a shepherd's hut, but long since gone.

The Wall commemorates the bushranger's birth by way of a mural painted by well-known artist Bronwyn Bassett which depicts the last three years of Ben Hall's life. The Wall is located in the village of Breeza, just off the Kamilaroi Highway. There is ample parking space available, with picnic tables and children's play equipment on site.

Australian Railway Monument and Rail Journeys Museum


Werris Creek is the first and last railway town in NSW and is located on a major railway junction. The Werris Creek railway station is the third largest in NSW. It houses the Werris Creek Rail Journeys Museum, which brings this town's railway past back to life.

The stunning displays are a credit to the tireless volunteers who made this museum happen. Constant upgrades and new displays will make the visitor come back again and again. The latest addition is a model railway showing Werris Creek in its railway heydays. The entry donations go towards upgrading and maintaining the museum.

The Australian Railway Monument commemorates railway men and women who have lost their lives in railway accidents since 1850. The landscaped monument area features six three metre stainless steel sculptures of railway workers created by Australian Artist Dominique Sutton, an amphitheatre for public concerts and over 2,400 names on walls of remembrance.
