Welcome to Merriwagga
BLACK STUMP COUNTRY!
Dating back to 1924, Merriwagga is genuine black stump country. A visit to the Black Stump Memorial tells the gruesome tale that gave black stump its name.
The name Merriwagga is believed to have come from its being on part of ‘Merri-Merrigal Station’, near a tank known as Wagga Tank.
A town filled with characters, you can share a yarn or two with the locals at the local hotel.
