Located at the junction of three major overland stock routes, Newcastle Waters was an important gathering place for drovers for provisions and rest before continuing on with their gruelling overland cattle drives.
The township has become a ghost town, but while uninhabited, Newcastle Waters has a rich, vibrant history. Preserved historic buildings such as Jones's Store and the Junction Hotel are a reminder of the early pioneering era. The Drover's Memorial Park, featuring a bronze statue of a drover, is also a must see.
