Cargo

Cargo, situated 35 kilometres south west of Orange is a small country hamlet with a population of 250. The town has a unique history as gold mining in the late the 1860's led to establishment of the township and in 1869 Cargo was proclaimed a goldfield. During the period of 1869 - 1899 the town swelled to a population of around 7,000 and boasted three hotels, a bank, several business houses, three churches, two schools, a flour mill, community hall, butter factory, gold crushing plant, a racecourse and sporting grounds for tennis, cricket and football. The village today offers visitors and residents a chance to relax with a slower pace of life, whilst still enjoying the services of a General Store/Post Office, primary school, church and hotel. The facilities of nearby Orange are but a short drive away.

Age Of Fishes Museum


Imagine a world ruled by fish!

Thousands of their fossils were found at Canowindra and give a unique glimpse into the Devonian Period - the 'Age of Fishes'.

The Museum displays many of these beautiful fossils together with live aquarium displays and wonderful recreations of life in the Devonian.

The Age of Fishes Museum offers two permanent exhibitions, an education program, gift shop, accessible facilities, and geological time-walk in the picnic ground and a free barbecue. Bring a picnic or barbecue in the peaceful grounds while the kids play on the giant games board. Entry includes an audio tour or guided tour. Groups are welcome. Please book in advance.
