A visit to beautiful Lockhart Shire is always a pleasure! Everywhere you go there is something to discover. Charming heritage towns with their own distinctive characters, quaint shops, the great outdoors, colourful events and a warm welcome. 

Walk in the heart of nature on a hike at The Rock and Galore Hill, take a cycle through rolling hills in the Shire's south east corner, experience fresh local produce, take the time to discover heritage experiences and lose yourself in the natural beauty of Lockhart Shire, from koalas and kangaroos to stunning sunsets and endless, star studded nights.

Set in the beautiful Riverina, near to Wagga Wagga and Albury, and not far from the popular Newell Highway, Lockhart Shire rests between the mountains and the outback, the wineries and the rivers. 

We really are an ideal base for exploring the entire Riverina region of New South Wales, so come and stay a while, we're waiting for you! 


Love Lockhart Shire Photo Competition!

Each year we hold a fantastic photo competition, open to everyone, including professional and amateur photographers.

The Love Lockhart Shire Photo Competition runs from 1 April 2017 until 30 June 2017 and features three categories - People; Places; and a Youth Category.

The prize money for the Open categories is $250 for each winner, and $100 for the youth category, with runner up prizes in each category. The catch is of course that the photos must be taken in our lovely Shire.

It’s a fantastic time of year to come and explore the natural beauty and charm in Lockhart Shire; to capture our beautiful, varying landscapes, our lovely old towns and the wonderful people who live and work here.

For anyone looking for inspiration we have iconic landmarks like the Rock and Galore Hill, fascinating old villages like Pleasant Hills that encapture a real feeling of our pioneering past, incredible farm art sculptures, colourful verandahs, quaint buildings, the list is endless!
