Old Wentworth Gaol

Reviewed By allisonmanor - Melbourne, Australia

In having visited the Gaol over 35 years ago with a young family I had Reservations about revisiting it. But now, with informative displays in rooms, it made the visit a worthwhile venture. Stayed over an hour and was entranced with the history and details that was displayed.

Perry Sand Hills

Reviewed By Johannabeach

Hi,
As a photographer, the sandhills are awesome, just don't go on a windy day or you'll need googles. They are really interesting to drive around, let the kids play in the sand, take a few snaps and maybe have a picnic lunch. Well worth a look. Lots of lovely native plants out in Spring.

Wentworth Pioneer Museum

Reviewed By Niknut57 - Wentworth, Australia

We visited the Pioneer Museum which is run by the local Rotary club. It truly does have a huge amount of memorabilia dating back many years. Vintage cars, hospital equipment, household items and much much more. They also have a display of Dinosaurs giving you an idea of what they looked like when roaming the earth.

Drove past whilst staying near Mildura. Very large shed housing vintage cars,bikes and machinary. Stuff you rarely see such as some outboard motors that convert from lawnmowers. For the over 50's memories may flood. Only $5 entry.

Artback Gallery

Reviewed By kwillyau - Melbourne

While staying in Mildura visiting relatives, I took a drive to Wentworth. Have been here a few times, but this time the town appears to be under revitalisation with lots of new shops, including art and craft. Stopped at the café to have some lunch. The café has a lovely atmosphere about it. While it has a modern feel about it, it still maintains an outback feel too. Also the attached gallery means there is lots of art to look at. For lunch I had the beef stew which was just right. And the hot chocolate made just how I like it. The staff were really friendly and provided excellent service. I would highly recommend visiting the café and also taking a trip to Wentworth just to check it out and see the new businesses.

Ferguson Tractor Monument

Reviewed By fional943 - Ballarat, Australia

I have a soft spot for Massey Fergusson tractors, but for the people of Wentworth, they have a place of significance across the entire town.
These wonderful small tractors, for which parts are still available for all models, saved the town from being inundated by floodwater in 1956.
The tractor sculpture commemorates this. Indeed during our visit to Wentworth 50th anniversary celebrations of the town being saved by these popular and reliable tractors was taking place. The entire town was awash with "Fergies", who were all congregating at the local oval for special commemorations and festivities.
The monument is located en route from the main street, to the park where the Darling and Murray converge.
I was sufficiently moved by the Fergie monument to take a photo and it has increased my respect for these special tractors more than ever!

Canoe Tree

Reviewed By JohnG3121 - Greater Melbourne, Australia

I've seen quite a few canoe trees in my travels around Oz. But this is probably one of the best I've seen. Absolutely magnificent. Also the location is a great picturesque spot

Wentworth Wharf

Reviewed By Famof5Travellers - Mildura, Australia

If you're looking for a shady, river front area to have a picnic - check out the Wentworth Wharf. There's plenty of shade under the trees, picnic tables and grassy areas to sit. You can walk along the wharf or the river, and can head up the step to the bridge. There's a footpath that traverses the bridge, enabling pedestrians to stroll over it and admire the view of the Darling River below and beyond.
Take lunch or snacks with you, or buy from one of the shops on the main streets of Wentworth.

after checking out the murray-darling lookout head around the corner to the canoe tree and junction island nature reserve. from the reserve car park it’s around a 15 min walk to lookout at end of junction island. along the way marvel at the huge gum trees and read the interpretation signs
TIP: be mindful of snakes and pay attention
