The historic village of Delegate is nestled among some of the finest grazing land in NSW and surrounded by areas of natural beauty. The township is steeped in history relating back to its very early settlement in 1832 and it is the NSW town closest to the Black Allen line - the border between NSW and Victoria. The border was surveyed in 1871/72 but only declared in February 2006. About Delegate Delegate Historic Homes and Buildings
