Trunkey Creek


Trunkey Creek is a lovely old gold mining village. The hills around Trunkey
Creek is honeycombed with abandoned mine shafts and mullock heaps and
together with the crumbling mud huts and brick chimneys are the only remains
of the goldrush age. Gold can still be obtained from the quartz rocks that
were left lying around the old mullock heaps.

The district was one of the earliest pastoral areas to be established.
Some of the early selections were surveyed in the 1820's. The present day
pastoralists in the area, produce some of Australia's top quality Merino wool.
Today Trunkey Creek is a quiet rustic rural village. The Hotel and Billabong
teahouse provide a service for visitors.

Another unusual and special attraction is provided by pioneer craft
demonstrations given by experienced bushmen. Wood skills, earth, mud and
stone wall building, blacksmith's and gold panning are some of the skills
demonstrated.

Wool festival, sheep show and horse show - Saturday, October long weekends
(annual) are highlights of the Trunkey Creek year.

Bathurst Farm Experience


Experience a real farm and interact with animals at Bathurst Farm Experience. Feed lambs, chickens, horses and learn about their uses. Have a led "pony" ride on a Shetland pony or draught horse. Take a sled ride behind a draught horse, maybe a sulky ride with one of these special horses and lots of fun activities over a very busy 1.5 hours.

If you have particular activities you would like to try discuss this on booking as all activities cannot fit into a 90 minute visit! Extra time may be possible for more activities, charges in 30 minute blocks. Cost AUD50.00 per hour.

Birthday parties are great fun at Bathurst Farm Experience. They provide the venue, you provide the kids and the food (or they can provide you with a contact who will look after food, face painting and other games).

Bookings are essential, times by arrangement.
