"A place in the bush" Pilliga by iandsmith

Pilliga Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 8 photos

A bore-ing town

"25 km along the Pilliga road (56 km west of Wee Waa), is the small township of Pilliga. It is, in fact, approachable from five directions, all of them dirt roads. Pilliga was once an important stop on the Cobb & Co route. It has a hot artesian bore bath in a tiled pool these have recently been done up. Of some curiosity are the authentic Indian headstones of the Allum family, Indian hawkers who worked the western area in the 1880s. "
All that you read may not be true. These days the road from Narrabri through Wee Waa is sealed!
Pilliga's main claim to fame is probably the Pilliga scrub, famous for all the timber it has provided but tourists these days come to experience the hot pool and they come in some numbers. Around 40 vehicles were camped there the night I stayed.
