Located along Murrumbidgee River, Yanga Woolshed was built in the late 1800s. Once the largest, most modern woolshed in the district, it housed 3,000 sheep and provided work for up to 40 shearers at a time.
Today, the woolshed is in Yanga National Park, part of Murrumbidgee Valley National Park, and you can wander through it on a self-guided tour, exploring its runs and pens, getting a feel for an authentic nineteenth century woolshed and a taste of Australian history.
You’ll also find an interpretive display to fill you in on the history of the area - once Yanga Sheep Station. Close your eyes and breathe in the smells of the past, imagining the sounds of docked paddle boats outside, waiting to transport their wool cargo down the river highway.
Don’t forget to check out the viewing platform for great river views; it was once where the old wharf stood. Pack lunch and visit the nearby Yanga Woolshed picnic area or stay overnight at Mamanga campground.
Yanga Woolshed is also available for weddings and private functions.
