Free Wyong Town Centre Heritage Tours

Heritage Month returns to Wyong for 2024! You’re invited to explore the rich history of Wyong town centre though an interactive Virtual Reality experience or an in-person walk conducted by Wyong Family History Group.

As part of Heritage Month, take a fascinating guided walking tour around historic Wyong learning about its establishment and development since 1887. The guided tours will be hosted by the Wyong Family History Group and will give you a peek into life in Wyong over 100 years ago.

Commencing from Albert’s Cafe next to Wyong Train Station, the tour takes about 90 minutes passing most of the town’s historic buildings along the way. The walk will follow the Pacific Highway, before heading up Alison Road and finishing on Margaret Street at the Post Office. Your guides have photographs of early Wyong which make the learning experience more enjoyable.

Afterwards, you may like to take some time to read about Wyong’s history further on our historical signs, stop for lunch at one of the town’s many eateries or browse some of the unique stores in the heart of the town centre.
