Our Heritage

Narrandera takes its name from the Narrungdera clan, part of the great Wiradjuri Nation.

The Murrumbidgee River is the township’s original reason for existence, giving Narrandera a special charm that is enhanced by its tree-lined streets and elegant heritage buildings. Once just a smattering of shanties and campsites at a point in the River where the famed “overlanders” crossed cattle in the 1850’s, Narrandera has become a friendly, and fascinating country town with tall tales and true to offer our visitors.

Narrandera’s early prosperity was derived from the squatter era and is evident in some of the buildings and early plantings of European trees. The township has been classified an Urban Conservation Area by State Heritage.
