Ganmain

From the Historical Museum, beautiful park, Huff 'n' Puff Straw Bale Constructions, and the Hay Display Centre, to the Murumbang Interpretive Walk, Craft Cottage and a famous pie, Ganmain has something to excite all the senses.

Ganmain is a small friendly community situated about 55 kilometres north-west of Wagga Wagga and 50 kilometres east of Narrandera. It's reputed to be situated in one of the richest agricultural and pastoral districts in the Riverina.

Ganmain enjoys the best of both worlds - the friendly, relaxed atmosphere of rural living, with shopping, health, cultural, recreational and education facilities available that are normally found in much larger centres.

The Ganmain Agricultural Show, held annually in August, is the town's key event of the year. In increasing numbers, visitors from near and far enjoy the relaxed 'bush' atmosphere of the show.

And you cannot visit Ganmain without tasting a famous Ganmain Pie!
