Woomelang VIC


Postcode: 3485

Woomelang is a town in the Mallee region of Victoria, Australia. The town is located on the Sunraysia Highway, 359 kilometres north west of the state capital, Melbourne, 183 kilometres south east of Mildura and 154 kilometres north of Horsham. Woomelang is in the Yarriambiack Shire Local government area.

As with most towns in the Mallee region, the main industry is dryland agriculture and woolgrowing. The population has been slowly declining, from 290 at the 1981 census to 211 people in 2001.

An interesting attraction to the south of Woomelang is a shearing shed constructed during World War II. Due to wartime shortages, the shed is made of compacted kerosene tins.
