Ivanhoe is a very small township on the Cobb Highway between the Lachlan and Darling rivers.

The town was founded in the early 1870s and was situated on well-used coach and stock routes connecting Wilcannia on the Darling River with Balranald on the Murrumbidgee and Booligal on the Lachlan.

The surrounding region is home to a vast number of small lakes, and with the Lachlan River about 40km to the South, there are excellent opportunities for fishing for both Murray Cod and Golden Perch. The beautiful Wilandra National Park is also close by.
