Hay is located on the banks of the picturesque Murrumbidgee River and is surrounded by the vast open Hay Plains. The town is situated at the junction of the Sturt, Cobb and Mid-Western Highways.
Hay’s history is rich with characters and tales of boom and bust, of isolation and innovation. It is in the centre of some of the flattest country on earth. With a population of 3,500, Hay is home to five museums including Shear Outback: The Australian Shearers’ Hall of Fame.
Hay is a popular destination for visitors who wish to experience the warmth of true country hospitality and a rich cultural heritage.
