Nyah & Nyah West

For a day of adventure and history with a difference, a visit to Nyah and Nyah West is a must for the whole family

The township of Nyah, on the banks of the Murray River, is popular with fishing enthusiasts aiming to hook a Murray cod – and campers and bushwalkers alike, looking to experience an outdoor adventure to remember in the tall red gum river forests. Craving history? Then travel three kilometres west and you will find the charming mallee township of Nyah West. With its bygone street landscape, one could think they are on a movie set in the 1920’s, not the main street of Nyah West.

This heritage listed and National Trust Judges Choice Award ‘Most Intact Streetscape’, is a captivating sight, just don’t expect the locals to be dressed in pioneer clothing.

Things to do

  • Discover The Ring Tree

    A remnant of pre-colonial days, the tree is a rare example of an Aboriginal boundary or river crossing marker. It is believed that this tree marked the direction of a safe river crossing which was used by local tribes and drovers.

  • Discover First Rice crop in Australia

    In 1905 Joe Takasuka began experimenting with different rice varieties, finally succeeding with rice suitable for Australian conditions. This has been recognised as the first rice crop in Australia, with a monument reflecting this achievement.

  • Discover Speewa Ferry

    Cross the Murray River in style on the famous Speewa Ferry or Punt, one of the last remaining ferries in operation along this section of the Murray River. The ferry is a free service and provides a seal road passage to Nyah via Speewa Road.

    Created by retired farmer Jim Watson, these unique artistic features are a must to see while in Nyah West. Reflecting true iconic Australian features, Jim has been able to transform rustic old wire into living breathing artistic sculptures.
