Kerrs Creek: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Sweetness Your Lolly Shop and Gelato


Sweetness Your Lolly Shop and Gelato is run by sisters with great memories of their local sweet store when they were kids. Going into the local supermarket and walking down the lollie aisle just does not provide the same experience. It was for this reason they decided to open up this locally owned and family run lolly shop.

They sell lollies and drinks from all over the world including America, New Zealand, England, Dutch, Belgium (chocolates) and Australia.

In mid 2013, as the business was growing, they expanded into a larger shop and started selling over 32 flavours of gelato. They also created their old fashioned parlour with retro booths, and complete with music appropriate to this era. They began selling soft serve ice cream thick shakes, banana splits, spiders, tea and coffee, and slices and scones.

Come along to share this old fashioned friendly experience.

Ophir Reserve


The first Australian payable gold discovery was made in 1851 at Ophir, 30 kilometres from Orange. Other gold fields soon overshadowed Ophir in size and richness, but to Ophir belongs the honour of being the first field where those very Australian words, digger and diggings, were first used.

Today Ophir is a recreational reserve - a picturesque picnic and camping ground at the junction of the Lewis Ponds and Summer Hill Creeks. Evidence of old alluvial, reef and deep lead mines is still visible to those wishing to explore the area. Hire a gold pan and try your luck in Summer Hill Creek just as the early settlers did during the gold rush of the 1850s.

Ophir has so much to offer. Camp for a night or two waking at dawn for an early morning fishing jaunt or tour a working mine that has been operating since the 1880s.

The sculptures can be seen at anytime, the scenic road is open and the free self drive tour can be experienced at your own pace, from the window of your car or campervan. Enjoy!
