Wentworth Shire is situated on the junction of the Murray and Darling Rivers in south western NSW. The southern boundary (along the Murray River) has the greatest population density in the townships of Wentworth, Dareton, Buronga and Gol Gol.

In the late 1880’s, Wentworth was bustling with river trade as Australia’s busiest inland port. Tourism is strong with attractions including the Mungo National Park and the Willandra Lakes World Heritage Area.
