The Rock

The township of The Rock is located on the Olympic Way 25km south of Wagga Wagga and 96 km north of Albury.

The character of the town is derived from its wide park-like main thoroughfare and the visual domination of the unusual mountain of rock that rises from the plain and lies immediately south of the town.
In the main street (Urana Street) silky oak trees were planted soon after World War I as an avenue of honour, one for each soldier in the district who served his country. The avenue was opened in 1920. In later years when the silky oaks required replacing, hardier kurrajong trees were planted.

The Rock was at one time an important rail junction until the decline of the branch line. Now with a population of 900 The Rock is steadily moving forward due to its close proximity to the largest inland city in New South Wales, Wagga Wagga.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
