W is for Walla Walla, New South Wales; and Wee Waa in New South Wales.

Continuing the A-Z of Australian country towns with attendant haiku, today is the letter W.

I’d love to hear from you about these posts. Please use the “Leave a comment” link just below the title of the post.

Walla Walla
The only Lutheran high school in New South Wales is located in Walla Walla. The town lies on the Olympic Highway between Wagga Wagga and Albury. It was established by German families from South Australia.

Wee Waa
My abiding memory of Wee Waa is the snowy white of escaped cotton littering the edges of the highways. Wee Waa is known as the cotton capital of Australia but also produces beef, wheat and sheep.
