About our area

Wakool Shire

Welcome to our region


Home to some of NSW’s most untouched rural scenes, the area encompasses some seven and a half thousand square kilometers and is one of the few shires in Australia to boast five magnificent Rivers in its borders.


The area’s natural assets prove to be a large attraction for locals and visitors alike and form the backdrop to many recreational activities.

The area's main population centres include Barham, Moulamein, Tooleybuc, Wakool, Murray Downs and Koraleigh.

The strong community participation in sporting, cultural and community activities sees an abundance of groups, facilities and things to do right across the shire- making the area a great place to live and visit.
