climate The Wentworth Wine District includes the area surrounding famous town of Wentworth located ate the junction of Australia's most famous inland rivers - the mighty Murray River and Darling River. The district is located in the far south-western corner of New South Wales in a land of contrast with fertile river plains near the rivers and the arid outback landscapes away from the vicinity of the rivers. The district is located in the Murray-Darling Wine Region about 100 km south-west of Sydney. It is an area with an interesting heritage as an inland port for the paddle-steams that plied the Murray and Darling Rivers. It is also rich in Aboriginal heritage with the renowned Wentworth Museum having more than 3,100 fabulous exhibits including the fossilised remains of Australian megafauna, which were giant marsupial mammals that lived in the area more than 19,000 years ago.
