Narrandera, known as the Town of Trees, sits in the Red Gum corridor of the Murrumbidgee River and on the intersection of the Newell and Sturt Highways.
With a population of around 3,800, the town is considered the gateway to the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area, one of the important food-bowls of Australia.
The Wiradjuri people are the traditional owners and we honour elders past and present.
Amongst the many things to do in Narrandera, the Lake Talbot complex is a highlight for many, mixing swimming pools, water slides, kiosk, boating, water skiing and other water-based activities.
Explore boutique shopping, heritage walks, or take a tour at one of the Shire’s museums. You can set out on a walk through our Flora and Fauna Reserve, biking trails, visit the Narrandera Wetlands, or participate in the numerous annual events such as the koala count and the Hot Rod show.
Narrandera has a lot of great rides for a variety of cyclists from road to mountain bikes.
There are a number of kilometres of fire trails that meander amongst forests and bush land, along the Murrumbidgee River and Lake Talkbot, or through the wetlands.
For those who like a little more gravity in their day, Pine Hill (about 2 mins out of Narrandera) has around 5 trails that can be linked together for a pretty full days riding. No shuttles unfortunately so once you go down you peddle up.
