The Rock Wine District, in the Riverina Wine Region, southern NSW is centred on the small township of The Rock
on the Olympic Highway about and 100 km north of Albury and 23 km south of Wagga Wagga.
The town is dominated by an unusual rock mountain that rises dramatically from the plain south
of the town. Kengal, as it was referred to by the local aboriginal tribe, the Wiradjuri,
is shaped rather like a crouching lion. It played a vital role in local initiation.
As one the very few areas of uncleared land in the area, The Rock provides important
habitat for a number of threatened plant species and animals and is now a nature reserve.
The Riverina Region is home to 17 districts: Junee ; Coolamon ; The Rock ; Lake Cargelligo ; Deniliquin ; Hanwood ; East Griffith ; West Griffith ; Griffith Central; Yenda ; Leeton ; Wagga Wagga ; Balranald ; Narrandera ; Stanbridge ; Hay ; Hillston ; Jerilderie.
