Picture Perfect Town where Community is Key.

Driving to West Wyalong in NSW, after recent rains you are surrounded by lush green paddocks, beautiful towering trees and patches of purple Paterson’s Curse.

Turning onto the main street there is no mistaking the old-world Australiana charm with historic buildings and original verandahs standing vigilant, watching the bustling of people and business.
