Breeza Australia


Breeza is a small village located about 45 kilometres south east of Gunnedah on the Kamilaroi Highway. The aboriginal name for Breeza means "one hill". The village overlooks the rich fertile Liverpool Plains and this diverse farming area produces many and varied crops throughout the year. When in season, the fields of sunflowers, sorghum, canola, wheat and cotton provide a picturesque vista across the sweeping plains. Breeza was settled in 1848 by Andrew Lang. Old folk say that Bushranger Ben Hall was born at Breeza, he was in fact born near Maitland, but his father, Ben Hall Snr worked on Breeza Station at one time. A mural 'Ben Hall's Wall' stands in the heart of Breeza to commemorate Ben Hall's final years set against "those wild colonial days" of yesteryear. Within the village, just off the Kamilaroi Highway, is a small park/rest area. The park has picnic tables and public toilets. It's an ideal spot to pull up, take a break and stretch your legs.
