WOOMELANG

Welcome to Woomelang

Located on the Sunraysia Highway, Woomelang was originally known as "Cronomby" after the natural waterhole that first attracted the early settlers to this area.

When the railway line arrived, the Government constructed earthen dams or "Tanks" as they became known, which are still there today but have been cleaned out and linked together to create a popular picnic area and fishing spot.

EXPLORE

Cronomby Tanks was originally a precinct where steam trains reloaded water supplies but today it’s a rugged sanctuary where people can camp for free, picnic, bird watch and bush walk. The untamed Mallee bush that surrounds Cronomby Tanks makes you feel a million miles away and don’t forget to take a fishing rod and relax by the soothing ponds.

EXPERIENCE

A fascinating attraction to the south of Woomelang is a shearing shed constructed during World War II. Due to wartime shortages, the shed is made of compacted kerosene tins. Woomelang has some great heritage and architecture including the heritage listed veranda/awning at the Woomelang Railway Station, the Court House and the local cemetery is a rich source of genealogical information.

Located south of Woomelang on the Sunraysia Highway is the Wild Dog Net Fence.

If you are looking for a good read, grab a copy of "Land Worth Saving". This locally authored book tells the history of Woomelang between 1898 - 1980
