Between Deniliquin, Swan Hill and Echca is the quiet township and informal holiday village of Wakool. It is home to a welcoming services club and a pub that’s a renowned stop-over for travellers through the area.
If you’re travelling the Murray River Road in spring, you should plan your trip to coincide with the Wakool Sheep Races, known as ‘The Melbourne Cup of the Bush’. This is local competition at its friendliest as farmers compete for cash prizes if their sheep runs first.
The Wakool area forms part of a network of amazing forest tracks through some of NSW’s most beautiful natural areas. It features a large collection of self-guided walking tracks and paths, as well as scenic drives throughout the region.
