"THE BORDER TOWN OF WALLANGARRA" Wallangarra by balhannah

Wallangarra Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 23 photos

WALLANGARRA is right on the New South Wales / Queensland border.
Wallangarra is in Queensland, and the buildings adjoining it are at "Jennings" in New South Wales.
I wonder which side is the best to live in?

I can tell you, don't expect to find much here, even food in the middle of the day was a bit hard to find!

Wallangarra has two Hotels, a Motel, I saw a craft shop open, Information centre, Police station and a very nice park.

Some funny things can happen here.

You can celebrate New Year's Eve twice - New South Wales operates on Daylight Savings time and Queensland doesn't.

You can have one leg in Queensland and the other in New South Wales.

The Anderson Meat Packing Company would be the main employer of the town and surrounding area. Over 400 workers at the Wallanagarra plant, which is Australia's largest mutton works. The mutton produced is Halal, and most of it is exported to Arab countries.

Just a short drive of 34kms and we will be in STANTHORPE, not far from home now!
