The small town of Yanco sits eight kilometres south of Leeton and was the starting point for development of the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area. Visit the Yanco Powerhouse on the last Sunday of each month. Once the main power generation station for the irrigation scheme, it has been restored as a museum. The Yanco Markets and Miniature Railway also operate on the last Sunday of each month. Explore the nearby Murrumbidgee River and State Forest Drives just south of Yanco.
