Wee Waa is Australia's Cotton Capital and is located in the rich agricultural heartland of Lower Namoi Valley in North West New South Wales. A modern town, it has many recreational facilities, cafes and shops. Of particular interest is the town’s architecture. The Imperial Hotel in Rose St was the first three-storey structure to be built in North West NSW and features magnificent iron lace adorned balconies, conjuring up scenes of the days when Cobb and Co coaches were familiar sights. The Wee Waa Court House in Rose St provides another reminder of Wee Waa’s early history, and the unique sloped roof of the local police station injects variety into the built landscape.
While in Wee Waa make sure you visit the unique Namoi Echo Museum on Rose Street which is a wonderful reminder of days gone by, open Thursday to Saturday. The CSIRO Australian Radio Telescopes will satisfy your scientific curiosities and a swim in the hot Artesian Bore Bath at Pilliga will soothe your aches and pains.
