West Wyalong is the main town of the Bland Shire in the Riverina region of NSW. West Wyalong is just over five hours’ drive from Sydney, around six hours from Melbourne and 3hr 20min from Canberra. You can also fly into Wagga Wagga or Griffith, which are both less than two hours’ drive.

The Main Street in West Wyalong is nicknamed the Crooked Mile as it was built around gold diggings and tree stumps. The street was famously sketched by Russell Drysdale in 1949 during a visit with a friend and a bronze sculpture of an easel now stands tall at the spot on the corner of the Tatts Hotel. 

Gold was discovered here in 1893 and you can follow the self-guided West Wyalong Heritage Walk through the historic streets, where the buildings are a mixture of late 18th and early 20th century featuring vintage shop facades and wrought iron verandahs.
