Manildra NSW is a small town situated on the banks of Mandagery Creek. Surrounded by rich agricultural land, fields of green wheat and golden canola create a patchwork across the landscape. Manildra weather is fairly warm and temperate with good rainfall, making for perfect growing conditions.

The town serves as the heart of industry in the region. Home to the Manildra Flour Mill, it is the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere. Family-owned, the mill is an important source of employment and economic stability in the town and a point of community pride. The flour mill train wagons have been painted with large-scale portraits of locals by internationally acclaimed artist Guito van Helten, which capture the everyday spirit of the town.

Manildra’s Amusu Theatre is the oldest continually operating theatre in Australia. In virtually original condition, visitors can directly experience the charm of a working Art Deco cinema, with new release films still being screened. An adjacent movie poster museum stands next door.

 The town has some nice examples of old buildings with character including a country style pub and The Memorial Hall and School Of Arts. There are two pleasant barbecue-appointed parks, and trout fishing is possible in nearby Boree and Mandagery creeks.
