Wee Waa


Renowned as the oldest settlement along the Namoi River, Wee Waa is a fascinating town with a rich agricultural history. Situated 576km north-west of Sydney, the cotton industry first began to boom in the area in the early 1960s, though the town and its surrounds had been an agricultural hub since the late 1800s. These days, the Wee Waa is widely recognised as the ‘Cotton Capital of Australia’.

The town’s streets are dotted with notable buildings, such as the Wee Waa Court House and the local police station. Of particular interest though is the Imperial Hotel, which was the first three-storey structure built in north-west NSW, and still features today its beautiful iron lace adorned balconies.

Accommodation and dining options and varied throughout Wee Waa, with the town proudly providing old fashioned country hospitality. Experience it for yourself today.
