Familiarise yourself with the amazing landscape in the Nhill area. Popular natural sites include the Tourist Walk (located north-east of town and winding through Mallee scrub and hearthland to a hill overlooking the district), Little Desert National Park (the second largest national park in Victoria, it has various walking tracks and wildlife) and the Big Desert Wilderness Park (which doesn’t have vehicular access and is only recommended for experienced walkers).
If you’re travelling during the summer, we’re sure that you’re going to be interested in ways to cool off on those long hot days. Pay a visit to Lake Nhill, which actually used to be a part of the Nhill Swamp. When the lake is full, it’s great for boating, but the porous lakebed and unpredictable rains mean that it may be dry. If you don’t mind a bit of a drive, Lake Hindmarsh is only an hours drive. It’s popular for swimming, fishing, boating and waterskiing.
Those who want to learn more about the region’s history will find plenty of attractions and things to do. The Historical Museum has displays relating to local history, John Shaw Neilson Cottage is where the famous poet once lived (and the memorial outside of town where it originally stood), the Australian Pinball Museum showcases a collection of pinball machines, and the Nhill Aviation Heritage Centre is located at a former World War II RAAF air base.
There are a few events held in the region each year that you might like to check out if you happen to be in town, including: the Duck and Jazz Festival (held every second year in February at Nhill), Y-Fest (held each Easter in nearby Warracknabeeal), the Art Is… Festival (held in April at nearby Horsham), the Nhill Air Show (held in October at the Nhill Aerodrome), and the NatimukFrinj Festival (held in November in nearby Natimuk).
It might be a relatively arid climate, but there are a handful of golf courses in the region that are lovingly tended for locals and tourists to utilise. The Nhill Golf Club offers unlimited play for the whole day and is licensed for 24 hours a day, so enjoy a drink after your game. The Horsham Golf Club is ranked amongst the top 50 in Australia and also boasts an onsite bistro. The Jeparit Golf Club offers 18-holes and is located on the banks of the Wimmera River.
If you feel like you’ve explored everything that Nhill has to offer, it also provides the perfect base for taking day trips throughout the Wimmera region. The bustling hubs of Horsham and Warracknabeal is only an hours drive, or you could venture across the border into South Australia – Bordertown is only an hours drive. There are also plenty of national parks and state forests within a few hours drive just waiting for you to explore them.
