Kinchega Woolshed

Kinchega National Park

Kinchega National Park was once part of the Kinchega-Kars pastoral lease held by the Hughes family since 1870. At its greatest, the property extended from Menindee to Broken Hill and covered an area of over 800,000 hectares. It is nestled between Menindee Lake and the Darling River.

In 1967 the Kinchega section of Kars lease was dedicated as a national park. The park now covers an area of 44,000 hectares. The last shearing was held in the woolshed in 1967 when the 6 millionth sheep was shorn as part of a ceremony dedicating the park. For More Information.
