Merriwa Country Women’s Association Branch has been operating in Merriwa since 1927. It is a member of the CWA of NSW which is the largest women’s lobby group in New South Wales. Originally established to support rural woman in their isolation and improve medical facilities in the country for women and children. The statewide organisation is a well known and vital part of the lives of many country women. Merriwa CWA is no different, we are part of the local community and raise funds to support schools, the hospital and other organisations.      

Merriwa CWA rooms are in Bettington Street, which is part of the Golden Highway as it passes through Merriwa. Our rooms are available for hire for private and community functions.

They are used for our monthly meetings and special events, it will feature in many of the photographs on this website. They play an important role in the annual Festival of the Fleeces in June by providing a place to sit down and rest whilst enjoying a warming soup or tea, cappuccino and scones.
