Other Information

Water is not available at Yanga Woolshed, so you'll need to bring your own.

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 is a unique venue hire option, offering a feel for an authentic 19th century woolshed and a taste of Australian history.

Here, you’ll 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.

You and your guests can check out the viewing platform for great river views – it was once where the old wharf stood. You can also explore Yanga Woolshed picnic area, or stay overnight at Mamanga campground for a true Australian bush camping experience.
