Goldfields at Ironbarks


Between 1875 and 1914 it is estimated that 140,000 ounces of gold was mined here. You can stroll across The Common and see many old mines. There are over 50 mine shafts and a Chinese oven which is evidence of the strong role Chinese miners played in the development of the Central NSW goldfields.

Today you can fossick and pan for gold at two sites. Details can be obtained at Mookerawa Waters Caravan Park or purchase a Metal Detecting Map 'Gold Relic Sites - Stuart Town Goldfield'.

Burrendong Botanic Garden and Arboretum


Burrendong Botanic Garden and Arboretum has one of the largest collections of Australian plants in cultivation. Over 50,000 flowering plants, shrubs and trees from more than 2,000 species are growing on 164 hectares overlooking the beautiful Lake Burrendong. The Arboretum's mission is to preserve and promote Australia's unique flora. Many rare and endangered species are being grown there.

The Arboretum was established in 1964, and has proven to be especially successful at growing plants from Western Australia and areas of low rainfall. It has received worldwide recognition for its remarkable collection of Australian plants and its pioneering role in the cultivation and promotion of our unique flora.

At all times there are some native plants in flower but from late winter to early summer the Arboretum explodes into colour as the hakeas, grevilleas and wattles are in bloom.

Indoor plant lovers will love the collection of sub tropical plants.
