Town Bio



Affectionately known as 'The Heart of New South Wales', the tranquil bushlands of the Lachlan Shire are the epitome of a relaxed, country lifestyle. The largest town in the region is Condobolin, a charming and surprising town boasting a picturesque landscape characterised by haunting red gums, flowing rivers and diverse wildlife.

The Lachlan Shire is the traditional land of the Wiradjuri people, and its Aboriginal heritage is of high significance to the community today. Scars and markings on trees and rocks remain as a reminder of their presence, which can be felt strongly within the ancient bushlands that surround the area.

Opportunities for relaxation, exploration or simply a much-needed change of scenery are provided by the endless list of attractions and things to do. Whether it’s camping, fishing, bird watching, bushwalking, or museum hopping, Condobolin has an activity to meet everyone’s holiday needs.

Experience the best in local hospitality by dining out at one of the town’s quality restaurants or cafes, and taste the freshest produce that the region has to offer. Alternatively, stock up on your favourite ingredients and enjoy a picnic on the banks of the beautiful Gum Bend Lake. 

At less than a day's drive from two capital cities, Condobolin offers an authentic taste of the Australian bush, and its natural wonders are waiting to be explored.
