EUCHAREENA
Wellington, Central West NSW
Euchareena, a small, quiet rural village in Central NSW is 43 km from Orange, 17 km from Stuart Town and 51 km from Wellington travelling along the Burrendong Way.  Turn at Nubrigyn Street off the Burrendong Way.   Molong is 30 km distant along Euchareena Road.
Euchareena is in the Wellington Council area in the Orana region of NSW - a tiny village with just a few houses but surrounded by a vast area of wheat, sheep, cattle and canola producing farmland.
By following the Newbrigyn Road towards Molong for approx 1.7km and turning left into Maroombah Road and travelling for just over half a kilometre you will come to the Euchareena Cemetery.  Gravestones and monuments indicate that burials commenced here around the 1870s.
Though Euchareena and the surrounding area is just a small population of around 300 there is still a small vibrant, positive rural school.
St Thomas' Anglican Church - a timber slab building,  stands on Nubrigyn Road.
At one point there was a Railway Station at Euchareena which created much growth in the area.  It opened in 1880 as Warne (Euchareena was originally known as Warne from 1834 to 1899) and was re-named as Eucharenna in 1899. 
It closed in 1976 and all that remains is a signal telephone mounted on a telegraph post on what appears to be the remains of the station platform.
Ben Hall and his gang also left their mark on Euchareena.  In 1865, they took over the Nubrigyn Inn for a night.  The remains of the old Inn still stand.
In 1926 a crop of 'Boomey Variety' wheat from Euchareena won the World Wide Wheat Championship in Regina, Canada.
The Euchareena Bush Fire Brigade covers a massive area that spans over 45,800 hectares.
