The town started with and will end with the Heritage Listed Hotel. The Hotel was built in 1882 with sandstone mined at Mt Poole, near Milparinka NSW and brought to Noccundra by Camel Train. Some of the interesting characteristics of the building include the gidgee timber used in the veranda which was too hard to put nails into, so the roof is wired together.
To the west of the hotel are the remnants of the Noccundra General Store c1890-1970’s. It is unsure what fate befell this sandstone building, but at one point the building housed the pub, and the hotel building was used for accommodation and meals.
Set between the store remains and the hotel is a memorial plaque to the ill-fated Andrew Hume Expedition, which passed the Noccundra Waterhole late 1874.
The Noccundra Waterhole is part of the Wilson River which sees an abundance of wildlife, particularly birds, including the grey grass wren. Other bird life you can spot are pelicans, brolgas, egrets, heron and the painted honeyeater. The river itself boasts a population of yellowbelly, catfish and silver perch along with blue claw yabbies and a large population of turtles.
