    Located on the Mitchel Highway as we headed out of Nyngan on our way to Cobar, is the Pioneer
    Memorial sculpture of a drover, his dog and a mob of sheep.
    A well done sculpture representing what the area is all about.

    Located in Vanges park infront of the Nyngan Museum, is an Iroquois 1022 Helicopter.

    It was donated to the town by the Federal Government to commemorate the evacuation of residents during the tragic 1990 Flood. Helicopters were used to airlift stricken residents out of the town in the worst floods of the century.
    260 000 sandbags were laid on top of the established levee but the waters inundated the entire town, necessitating the airlift by helicopter of 2000 citizens, virtually the entire population.
    The Helicopter came from the United States in 1962, and played a vital role in the Vietnam War transporting Australian troops and equipment.

    The old railway station has been restored and converted into the Nyngan historical museum. It includes photos and videos relating to the 1990 flood, the history of Nyngan and surrounding areas, from 1835. It has a railway display and a scale model of the Girilambone Copper Mine.
    I didn't visit the inside, just admired the outside.

    OPEN....
    Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 4:00pm.

    About the only place in Nyngan open for a sit down meal, was the Cafe named "Ducks Nutz."
    It's located in an old building, but don't worry about that.
    It was clean and there were plenty of tables and plenty of customers. We put our order in, then it wasn't long before the food was at our table. I had "fish 'n chips" which was a huge serving, cooked to perfection. My husband had the "all day breakfast," another huge serving which he thoroughly enjoyed.
    The staff we nice, the food was good, the price was cheap - We would return!

    OPEN... Monday to Sunday 6.30am - 8.30pm.

    Pizzas available Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday.

    Dine in or Takeaway
