MULLALEY

Mullaley is another of those very small towns that qualifies for the synopsis. Mullaley is a small town that is encounted when traveling the Gunnedah to Coonabarabran hgy.

One of the really cute things is the use of the ‘old’ miles to markers in some of the driveways.

Mullaley is on the crossroads of the roads from Boggabri in the north, Premer in the south, Gunnedah in the east and Coonabarabran in the west. The surrounding area is part of the highly fertile Liverpool Plains region. At the 2006 census, Mullaley had a population of 217 people

The Mullaley district has an agricultural community that produces wheat, other grains, fat lambs and beef cattle.

On 14 October 1999 a 40 minute storm dumped 76 mm of rain and hail on the Western Liverpool Plains region around Mullaley causing damage to dozens of farms. The heavy rain that fell caused localized flooding. Numerous homes were flooded as hail-clogged roof guttering overflowed.

According to the entry sign (2008) there are 102 people in the village. Mullaley is one of the smallest centres accorded a review. The village now has a public school, sports ground, roadhouse, hotel, bus service, store, park and a stone war memorial with an honour roll. The Goolhi Graves on Old Goolhi Station, Mullaley have been placed on the heritage register.

The Mullaley War Memorial is near the school.

Mullaley, although only 100 or so people has two churches.

The Mullaley Hotel is a tavern like pub on the western fringe of the township.

If the timing is right after a look at those mile pegs a refreshment may be in order.
