West Wyalong Attractions

Beckett's Pioneer Farm

Some of us like to collect things like coasters or teaspoons but the owner of the Pioneer Farm loves to collect buildings. Here at the farm you will take a step back in time when you see the original settlers buildings from around the district. There is also a Gipsy Wagon, an old Chapel and of course the beautiful farm animals. Visits are by appointment only. Phone: (02) 6972 3286 for visiting hours and directions.

Garden Club 2000 Rose Garden

The Rose Garden is particularly attractive in the flowering season with over 220 roses. The garden was designed and tended by volunteers and it provides a pleasant picnic setting.

Located on the corner of the Newell and Mid Western Highways, opposite Lions Park.

Lions Park

Within Lions Park there is a Douglas DC3 Dakota that was built in 1943 in Oklahoma City, USA. The plane was donated to the West Wyalong Lions Club who made it a feature in the park.

The park is located on the corner of the Mid Western Highway and Newell Highway on the western side of the highway, opposite the Rose Garden.

Poppet Head

An authentic replica of a gold mining poppet head and miners hut are located in a bushland setting in Cooinda Park Reserve, just off the Newell Highway between Wyalong and West Wyalong. At the park there is a picnic area with public toilets and walking tracks through the bush. The Poppet Head can be seen when you walk the Green Corridor.

The Green Corridor

The Green Corridor is a 4.4 kilometre track that joins the townships of Wyalong and West Wyalong. This walking and cycling track journeys past some interesting out-door art. Also along the way is the McCann Park which has a beautiful man-made lake where you can feed the ducks, plenty of shady areas, barbecue facilities and public toilets and the Barnado Park which also has picnic facilities and playground equipment for the children.

There is a lot of history in West Wyalong and I am sure you will admire the original buildings built around the turn of the century. The walk takes you past museums, churches, memorials, schools and lots more. Before you start your walk call into the Information Centre and pick up a map that will guide you to all the places of interest.

The walk starts in the centre of town and takes in many of the buildings that are still in use today.
