Finley - Places to See

Finley and Irrigation
The main street of Finley bridges Mulwala Canal, at 155 km the largest irrigation channel in Australia. At the northern approach to town is the Wheels of Prosperity display, intended as a symbol of water's importance to the town and district. The landscaped foreshores of artificially constructed Finley Lake make for a pleasant picnic or barbecue. There is also a wharf, a boat ramp, a pool, a gardens area and children's play facilities, including a replica sailing ship.

Mary Lawson Wayside Rest
Mary Lawson Wayside Rest, at the south end of town, also has playground equipment. Nearby is a log cabin replica of a pioneer home run by the historical society with a display of local historical material, including antiquated pumping equipment and machinery. Rotary Park, in Denison St, contains an Aboriginal canoe tree which once stood by the Murray River.

Loco Dam
A recent development is Loco Dam, reached by turning east at Wollamai St. The rodeo is held at the showground in December, the Finley Aquafest in February and the Agricultural show in September.
