Wallalong is a small suburb in Hunter River country across the bridge from the historic port of Morpeth. Its buildings reflect early colonial architecture and are surrounded by picturesque countryside. Unique crops of broom millet were grown in Wallalong in the early 1800s and a broom millet factory was established in the area. Today millet broom production occurs in neighbouring Phoenix Park.
