Boonoo Boonoo Falls
Following the walking tracks through an amazing bushland, you will be mesmerised by the diverse wildflowers, seduced by the secluded rock pools, and blown away by the uninterrupted view of the cascading waters of the Boonoo Boonoo River over a granite cliff edge. Plunging over 200m into the gorge below, this is a waterfall unlike anything you have (or will!) ever experience!
Australian Standing Stones
Boasting an amazing history, the Standing Stones are a place of wonder. Officially opened in 1992, they are more than a celebration of Celtic descendants and clans– they mark Australia’s Southern Cross, as well as the Solstices. With 40 stones in total, and with each stone standing as a symbol in itself, you will be transported to another era while celebrating Australia’s rich Celtic heritage.
Captain Thunderbolt Museum Tour
Captain Thunderbolt was one of Australia’s most notorious bushrangers, with over 128 robberies to his name! He was sentenced to ten years of hard labour when the law caught up with him, but escaped soon after. Although it was believed Captain Thunderbolt was shot dead by a Constable while on the run, a lot of mystery surrounds his death– an incomplete police report and sightings of Thunderbolt after his supposed shooting all raised suspicion, making for exciting history! A visit to the McCrossins Mill Museum, which houses an extensive collection of paintings and artifacts connected with the notorious bushranger, as well as a sneak peek at his hideout cave, will provide you with unique insight into NSW’s most famous bushranger… can you expose the truth?
How better to make your millions than in gold?
Rocky River was once home to over 5,000 pioneers who dreamed of making their fortunes by gold panning in Uralla’s Rocky River. Once providing locals with untold wealth via payable gold, the River is a physical reminder of the historical, industrial and social history of the area, as well as being rich in folklore and– dare we say!– gold!
All utensils (and instruction on panning!) are included and, best of all, whatever gold you find is yours to keep!
