Visit Hay

Situated on the picturesque Murrumbidgee River and surrounded by the vast open Hay Plains, Hay's history is rich with characters and tales of boom and bust - of isolation and innovation. Over centuries poets and artists have attempted to capture the spirit of the plains, but only a visit to Hay will give visitors the real experience - the unique landscape, the diversity of attractions, the richness of our cultural heritage and the warmth of pure country hospitality.

Come and visit our wonderful museums, our beautiful parks and gardens and in the summer our free swimming pool complex. Enjoy the wide range of sports on offer.
