Towns like Balranald, Hay, Dubbo, and Coonabarabran are included in this region.

Balranald

The quiet and pretty town of Balranald is located on the Murrumbidgee River 859 km from Sydney. Originally inhabited by the Wemba-Wemba Aboriginal group, who called the area 'Nap Nap', Balranald was probably the first town settled on the New South Wales side of the river. Balranald is now one of the major entry points to the Lake Mungo National Park and the recently opened Yanga National Park.

Coonabarabran

Coonabarabran is a place of many contrasts where the landscape and villages create a patchwork across the countryside, reflecting the varied lifestyles and influences. Coonabarabran, centrally located on the Newell Highway, is the main town in the region and is a perfect starting point to discover the charming townships of Coolah, Dunedoo, Baradine, Mendooran and Binnaway.

Dubbo

Dubbo is a wonderful country city of the Central West Region of New South Wales, being located at the intersections of the Mitchell, Newell and Golden highways, it is at the crossroads of the north-south and east west transport routes. Dubbo is a 5 hour drive from Sydney and is very well serviced by train (CountryLink) and air with REX and Qantas should you wish to fly.

Hay

Hay is a delightful township and home to the spectacular new attraction Shear Outback, The Australian Shearers’ Hall of Fame. Set in the heart of the Riverina and on the eastern edge of the New South Wales Outback, Hay is located almost halfway between Sydney and Adelaide and is set beside the Murrumbidgee River at the junction of the Sturt, Cobb and Mid Western Highways.

Nyngan

Thomas Mitchel, the famous Australian Explorer, camped at the present-day site of Nyngan in 1835, but it wasn’t until nearly fifty years later that the town was surveyed; its history is evident by the wonderful architecture of many of the old buildings.
