Adjungbilly: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Burrinjuck Dam


Originally the Aboriginal Booren Yiack, then Barren Jack and now Burrinjuck, the name has become renowned as a nature and water wonderland on the headwaters of the Murrumbidgee River 60 kilometres from Yass.

Constructed over more than 20 years, the Burrinjuck Dam remains one of the world's largest irrigation dams, an engineering feat that provides water to the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area for crops, river flows and town supplies.

Lake Burrinjuck State Water Park attracts a quarter of a million tourists each year, not just for almost every water sport imaginable, but some of the state's best bush walking, bird watching and picnicking in 75 hectares of unspoiled natural playgrounds.

Careys Cave


Careys Cave is located in the beautiful Wee Jasper valley, about 50 kilometres from Yass and 80 kilometres from Canberra.

Set in a spectacular limestone landscape, Careys Cave features beautiful, naturally sculpted rock and a wealth of different cave formations. Access is down a flight of 30 steps, after which floors are mostly level with well-trodden and lit paths passing through various chambers. Suitable for all ages, two tours are on offer, covering different parts of the cave system, depending on group size. Tour content can be tailored to the requirements of school groups, and many outdoor educational caving groups include Careys Cave as part of their program.

A number of concerts are held in the caves throughout the year, as well as the occasional wedding. Outside, there is a covered area with tables and chairs, toilet facilities and a small kiosk. Nearby is a cafe, open on weekends, and the surrounding valley has a number of beautiful riverside campgrounds.

Hume and Hovell Walking Track


The Hume and Hovell Walking Track extends from Cooma Cottage Yass to Albury. It follows as closely as possible the route taken by the famous overland explorers Hamilton Hume and William Hovell. The track skirts around the high mountain ranges and crosses some farming country and forestry lands; about half the track is along roads, or on forestry vehicle tracks.

The 440 kilometres track is well signposted and provides opportunities for numerous day walks, weekend walks or for the 'long distance' walker a 21 day walk.

Eighteen campsites with clearings, pit toilets, water, and tables have been established along the route. Distance between campsites varies from six to 30 kilometres and camping (no facilities) is also allowed in between the established sites.

There are also three special track heads along the route (about 100 kilometres apart) with hot water, showers, and electric cooking plates amongst the facilities.

Wee Jasper Bridge over Goodradigbee River


Completed in 1896, the Wee Jasper Bridge is an early example of an Allan type timber truss road bridge. Allan trusses were third in the five stage design evolution of NSW timber truss bridges, and were a major improvement over the McDonald trusses which preceded them.

The Wee Jasper bridge is a representative example of Allan timber truss road bridges, and is assessed as being State significant, primarily on the basis of its technical and historical significance.

Bridges are not just functional, they can also be scenic and engineering attractions. Spare a few minutes to admire Wee Jasper Bridge over Goodradigbee River.
