Narrandera is a Country NSW National Trust Urban Conservation Area located at the crossroads of the Newell and Sturt highways. This tranquil rural town in the heart of Riverina features tree-lined streets, fine historic buildings and many historic attractions.
There's plenty to see and do in and around Narrandera. Browse charming boutiques, learn about the famous Murray cod and other species at Narrandera Fisheries or go wildlife-spotting on the Bundidgerry Walking Track.
Performing arts is a big part of Narrandera culture. Every March, the town holds the John O'Brien Festival, a celebration of word and song. Narrandera is also home to the world's largest playable guitar. Fans of Australia's 'big things' might also want to visit Barellan, an hour to the north, to see the big tennis racquet. While you're here, drop in to the Barellan Museum.
Natural attractions around Narrandera and the wider Griffith area offer plenty of experiences to enjoy. Go waterskiing on Lake Talbot and take advantage of the Lake Talbot Aquatic Park, or look for koalas at the regeneration reserve. Also nearby are the Narrandera Wetlands, great cycling and hiking tracks and Murrumbidgee Valley National Park. You can fish the Murrumbidgee River, too.
