Rockley

Situated 35kms south of Bathurst and dating back to 1813, surveyor Evans' discovery makes this unique area one of the oldest settlements west of the Blue Mountains. In 1818 land grants were made in the area to William Lawson. However, the actual site of Rockley on Peppers Creek, was kept as a government stock reserve. The Summer Hill copper mine opened in 1848 when gold was discovered in the district. The township of Rockley was settled in July 1851. Present Today Rockley is a delightful place to visit with a large array of facilities, attractions and events with an historic flair. What to Do and See There are still many historic buildings including churches, banks, a hotel, shop fronts and private dwellings that have been restored to their former glory. The Rockley Mill, once a flour mill, is now a museum, not to be missed, containing historical mill machinery and clothing, old police records from the district and old newspapers. A crowd drawing event is Rockley's famous Rodeo held during February or March every year. Rockley is home to two world champion riders who have competed for American and Australian titles.
