West Wyalong is a town of 3,420 people located at the junction of the Newell and Mid Western Highways 470km west of Sydney. The town developed rapidly following the discovery of gold and the ad hoc nature of development planning in those days is reflected in the famous crooked main street which was originally a bullock track meandering around stumps and trees. The Bland District Museum has over 5,000 historical items and 2,000 photos that are associated with the area and particularly the gold rush era. Keep fit by walking the 3.5km Green Corridor Track which leads to the Cooinda Bush reserve. The town is in the Bland Shire Council Region.
