The Wentworth Visitor Information Centre caters for the wider Wentworth shire. The friendly staff are more than happy to answer any queries about the area and its rich history.

Wentworth New South Wales, is situated 34 kilometres north-west of Mildura, at the confluence of Australia's greatest rivers, the Darling (2740 kilometres) and the Murray (2530 kilometres), a 'great place to meet'. The area is unique because the Murray Darling river system is the fourth largest in the world.

Wentworth Visitor Information Centre supply maps, drive and walk trails for an area abounding in natural features, enjoying superb weather for sightseeing, house-boating, fishing, bird-watching, camping, water skiing, plus top class sporting facilities.

Wentworth is the gateway to the outback and only 265 kilometres from Broken Hill and a 25 minute drive from Mildura. The historic port town retains a village atmosphere with an 'olde worlde' charm created by many classical heritage buildings and a town wharf precinct.

The restoration of the 1907 Paddlesteamer PS Ruby is complete. The PS Ruby is the Port of Wentworths flagship, another example of gems that reflect the grand old days.

Other local attractions include the Old Wentworth Gaol, Pioneer Museum, Perry Sandhills (400 acres of desert sand dunes only six kilometres from town), Lock 10 and Weir, Fergie Tractor Monument, Historic Buildings, Art Galleries, Paddleboat Model Displays, a variety of accommodation for all budgets, Australian Inland Botanical Gardens, weekend markets, river cruises, wineries and much more.

Local guides conduct expert tours to Mungo National Park World Heritage area. Or come and see where the two rivers meet.
