Conargo Region

Pretty Pine, Wanganella, Booroorban, Conargo, Blighty & Mayrung

The Conargo Region is the smallest Local Government Area (by population) in NSW and is made up of a number of small villages. Three of the villages, Pretty Pine, Wanganella and Booroorban are located on The Long Paddock Cobb Highway Touring Route. The Conargo region is home to the famous Headless Horseman sculpture (located at the Black Swamp between Booroorban and Wanganella). This is a must see photo stop for all visitors.
