Trundle is a small service town encounted when traveling the hgy between Forbes and Nyngan. Trundle is a town that is now a struggling community that shorter distances have hit hard. The future for this small community looks bleak. Trundle was recently visited by ABC TV that was about the issue of small town challenges.

Trundle Lagoon Post Office opened on 1 May 1889 and was renamed Trundle in 1892.

The town is noted for its unusually wide main street. At 60 metres, it is one of the widest main streets in the country. It needed to be as wide as this to accommodate turning bullock-trains. The Trundle Hotel also claims the second longest hotel balcony in NSW at 94 yards (86 metres) (the longest belonging to Cobar.

Trundle is home all of the main congregational church faiths., The Catholic Church is large and modern. The Anglican is also modern but the Unitedand Presbyterian much older

Health services are provided through the Trundle multi-purpose health centre (formerly the Trundle hospital).

The town also boasts a golf course with sand-oil greens, a 25 metre swimming pool, tennis courts, horse-racing facilities and a sporting oval named Berryman Park.

In September, an annual festival called "Bush Tucker Day" occurs. The town's small population is usually increased 2 to 3 fold. The main event is a cook off, where contestants strive to make the best tasting bush food. A panel of judges decides the winner. Bush music is a major part of the day.

The Trundle War Memorial is the Memorial Hall and new Garden.

Should the traveler find themselves on this road a look in is recommended, but is not worth a diversion visit.
