West Wyalong is located where the Newell & Mid Western Highways meet.

West Wyalong is approximately halfway between Sydney and Melbourne on the Newell Highway (470 and 560 kilometres respectively)and is on the Mid Western Highway, the main route between Adelaide and Brisbane. This makes West Wyalong a very popular stopover for people travelling between these centres.

West Wyalong caters very well for travellers with lots of accommodation, hotels, restaurants, cafes, clubs, service stations and shops. There is a local swimming pool, football fields, Golf course and the amazing Hot Glass Gallery.

West Wyalong started out as a gold mining town in late 1800. The whole area was a honeycomb of mine shafts and tunnels, maps of these mining claims can be viewed at Mayfair Motel Gallery. Most of these old mines have been successfully filled in and now the whole township sits atop of them.

Gold mining still plays an important role here at West Wyalong with Evolution Mining having a very large open cut mine only about 40 kilometres from town. (photos are shown below)

West Wyalong has numerous Heritage listed buildings,  Cooinda Reserve home to the replica of True Blue Poppet head which represents West Wyalong’s gold mining history, opposite Cooinda Reserve is the Wetlands Boardwalk and further out of town is Lake Cowal where there is public access and a conservation area. (for more information see us at Mayfair Motel)



Of course no country town could be without their Pony Club, Campdraft area and Trotting Track, all taken care of at West Wyalong Showground. Then a couple of kilometres out of town there is the Rugby Union Ground and a little further on the Horse sports and Rodeo Ground.

Other services include the West Wyalong District Hospital, Dental Surgery, Medical Centre and Optometrist.

Education is catered for by West Wyalong’s Primary and high schools as well as TAFE.
