Barellan: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Country Women's Association (CWA) Rest House


The CWA rest house in Barellan, dating from 1924, is of state significance for being one of the first CWA Rest houses built by local country women in Australia.

The name 'rest room' has often been confusing to outsiders, who have seen it as a coy term for public lavatories. The rooms certainly contained clean toilet facilities but went far beyond this. What the women of the CWA were creating in their rest rooms was a home away from home, where women could put their feet up, allow kids to roam free, make a cup of tea and conduct meetings in dignity and comfort.

The Barellan CWA Rest house is run by the Barellan Branch of the CWA.

Evonne Goolagong-Cawley Wall


In 1956, across the back lane from the Goolagong home, the Barellan War Memorial tennis Club was built. The practice wall, where Evonne Goolagong-Cawley would spend hours hitting a ball with a small homemade wooden bat, still stands.

Bring your own tennis racquet to have a hit or simply take your photo there.

Saltbush Bill


Saltbush Bill accompanies the Barellan Museum sign. He is a cartoon character created by Eric Jolliffe depicting a sheep drover with a whip in hand and best mate at foot.

Country people over the years have suffered heartbreak in many forms but have always kept their sense of humour in these times of adversity. Barellan residents hope saltbush Bill will remind them all of how good country life can be.
