Cottage Museum


This cottage has an interesting history - after being built as a home it was used by a number of banks before reverting to a home and is now a museum and the headquarters for the Merriwa Historical Society. Take a poke around this fascinating little place and let the members of the Historical Society fill you in on the history of the area.

This cottage is believed to have been built around 1856 by a Mr Leard. Local History suggests that it also served for a period as a bank, as well as the cellar being used for dances and meetings. The cottage now holds Merriwa's Historical Society Museum and with items donated from around the district it is an interest display with three rooms and the cellar full of local relics.

James Estate - Ridge Walk


The Ridge Walk showcases the natural beauty of the region with commanding views in all directions, overlooking James Estate winery, Wollemi National Park, Goulburn River National Park and Mount Dangar.

The full trail is a signed four kilometre (return trip) grade three walk. To fully appreciate the experience it is best to allow 1.5 hours for the walk from the James Estate cellar door. For the less energetic there is a shorter walk available that still affords spectacular views of the winery, vineyards, the Goulburn River and Wollemi National Park.

A grade three walk is suitable for most ages and fitness levels although some bush walking experience is recommended. Walkers will encounter some natural obstacles, loose terrain and short steep sections, so sturdy footwear is highly recommended.
