The Rock township is located on the Olympic Way 25 kilometres south of Wagga Wagga and 96 kilometres north of Albury.
The character of the town is derived from its wide park-like main thoroughfare and the visual domination of the unusual mountain of rock that rises from the plain immediately south of the town.
In the main street (Urana Street) silky oak trees were planted soon after World War I as an avenue of honour, one for each soldier in the district who served his country. The avenue was opened in 1920. In later years when the silky oaks required replacing, hardier Kurrajong trees were planted.
The Rock was at one time an important rail junction until the decline of the branch line. Now with a population of 900 The Rock is steadily moving forward due to its close proximity to the largest inland city in NSW, Wagga Wagga.
