Mid State Shearing Shed

shearing shed 300The Mid-State Shearing Shed was built in a disused railway goods shed by a group of retired shearers and the people of Nyngan. Their wish was to inform the public of the important contribution that the shearing industry is continuing to make to Nyngan and New South Wales.

The organisers also wished for the Mid-State Shearing Shed to display the talents of the local artists with the inclusion of large murals  of the walls.

The Mid-State Shearing Shed is situated on the Mitchell Highway adjacent to a parking bay and Heritage Park.

Open from 9:00am - 12:00pm Monday to Friday, or by appointment: Phone: Frank Walsh 02 6832 1381.
