Experience a land rich in pastoral heritage.
Once famous for wool productions, Willandra National Park gives insight into the region's pastoral heritage. The old homestead and shearing shed precincts are fascinating to explore.
The park’s natural attractions are just as compelling – it’s no wonder this peaceful and secluded place is favoured by photographers and artists.
Vast, semi-arid riverine plains incorporate wetlands, grasslands, and black box-lined creeks. These support an abundance of wildflowers, kangaroos and emus, waterbirds, reptiles and frogs. Activities include the Nilla Yannagalang Billana walking track – the name means “walking alone together” and it will seem that your only company is nature as you meander alongside the Willandra Creek.
There are picnic and barbecue areas, plus opportunities for cycling, fishing, seasonal canoeing and nature study. Stay overnight in a choice of historic pastoral accommodation or camp out under the stars.
The park is about an hour from Hillston via the Ivanhoe-Mossgiel Road and Whealbah-Trida Road.
