You’ll be made welcome in Narrandera. There are a few things we want to share with you.

Lake Talbot Swimming Complex is a sparkling place, so bring your friends. Your children will enjoy the choice of pools, the water slide and the rampage slide. You can BBQ or picnic under a canopy of trees while the Kookaburras wait for your left-overs. The pools rest beside Lake Talbot itself, so bring the boat for a day of skiing, or canoe in the backwaters of Rocky Water Holes.

A dusk or morning walk through the red gum forest between lake and river is your best chance to spot a koala. And you must not leave town without dropping in to see Michael at Sandhills Artefacts. Michael Lyons uses the skills his father passed on to him, and his artefacts are in demand. He’ll show you his collection of traditional tools, a humpy, and more.

Now, you may have to plan your road trip to include our villages. They are hothouses of creativity. Barellan Beer is a community enterprise which brews a pale ale using locally grown barley. It’s on tap at the Barellan watering holes.  Your children will love the Grong Grong Earth Park. It’s a wild playground, think natural, re-cycled – think fun!
