Welcome to Uranquinty!
Uranquinty, an unusual name and a unique place on the map. This name is etched in
the memory of over 2,000 pilots and airforce personnel who trained here from 1941 to
1958 as well as the 28,000 displaced persons who passed through the migrant camp from 1948 to 1951.
The village of Uranquinty began like most other settlements through out the area,
because of a need for expansion and settlement of new lands during the 1800s
and the building of the railway from Wagga Wagga to Albury

Commemorating the unique history of our village
Hall & Venues
In April 2010 the UPA committee, in conjunction with Wagga Wagga City Council and Origin Energy opened our ‘New’ Community Hall. Our Hall exists for the community and is available for hire for private and public functions as well as small community groups.
The Uranquinty Neighbourhood Centre has played an important role in our village since 1983
Playgroup was the first group to use the new building along with outreach programs
and fundraising activities. The preschool began in 1984
and still remains the major user of the building.
Welcome to our village, it’s a great place to stop and break your journey.
We have one of the best bakeries in the Riverina at the Quinty Bakehouse. Our village is the obvious location to break your journey with a cake and coffee, and for caravanners, we have the facilities for you to empty your grey waste.
We welcome Grey Nomads and all visitors travelling through the village.
We hope you enjoy your visit – and come back soon!
