West Wyalong Things to Do: 3 reviews and 12 photos
West Wyalong for a lot of people, is a stop-over on their journey to "elsewhere," or it's a town that is driven straight through.
The main street is the Newell Highway, although these days, it is bypassed by many of the trucks and cars, and is mainly used by the locals.
Talking about roads, the street is a "crooked one." We have often said why on earth didn't they make it straighter, now I know why.
This was the original route of a Bullock track which wound around gold diggings and old tree stumps. By the time the town was surveyed there were already shanties and other buildings, dotted around the track, so they didn't change anything, not even in these modern times, only it is a sealed road and lined with many historic buildings.
Unlike many other towns, the old buildings are most needed of a coat of paint, perhaps it will happen one day!
