Conveniently located on the Newell highway, West Wyalong and the Bland Shire have much to offer with plenty of accommodation, and a rich heritage and gold mining history.

Spend time amongst the friendly locals exploring the crooked Main Street - originally a bullock track woven around gold mines. Cafes, homewares/gift stores and country pubs line the unusual shaped street offering an insight into the magnificent heritage of the town.

There is a range of accommodation in town as well as two caravan parks and an excellent Services Club. West Wyalong and the surrounding villages offer several brilliant parks with barbeques, play equipment and amenities. Visitors can also beat the heat at the local pool complete with a water slide and shaded toddlers splash pool.

The town recently experienced its second gold rush with the establishment of the Barrick Gold Mine at Lake Cowal. The shire is also sustained by dryland farming so be sure to look for the golden fields of canola in spring.
