Woomelang

YOU ARE IN: Home Page > Tourism > 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.
Today, the town services a productive farming area, provides a range of excellent community and sporting facilities and is the base for a number of agricultural support businesses.

A good example of local ingenuity can be seen on the southern approach to the town where a shearing shed, constructed using compressed kerosene tins, stands as a monument to the war time shortage of building materials.
