McCaughey Bicentennial Park

Natural Attractions

McCaughey Bicentennial Park is an original natural spring fed waterhole, which existed as part of North Yanko Station – one of the pastoral holdings owned by the late Sir Samuel McCaughey. The waterhole was used for sheep brought in for shearing at the shearing shed, then located in front of the present Powerhouse building.

In 1987, Leeton Shire Council undertook the project and transformed the area into a tranquil aquatic reserve, a haven for swans, geese, ducks and other native waterbirds. The site now includes a statue in memory of Sir Samuel McCaughey who showed that irrigation was possible on his property North Yanko Station.

A wonderful area for family barbecues and picnics with excellent play equipment for children on offer.
