Delegate

The historic village of Delegate, nestled among some of the finest grazing land in NSW, is also surrounded by areas of natural beauty.

The history of the township goes back to 1832 and is the NSW town closest to the Black Allen line - the border between NSW and Victoria. The border was surveyed in 1871 or 1872 but not declared until 2006.

There is also a small shrine in the Delegate cemetery marking the site of the first place of worship on the Monaro, and at the southern end of town stands the red granite monument commemorating the historic Men from Snow River March in 1916. A little further on is the Early Settlers Hut, built in the 1820s.

The village is the ideal place to recharge your senses. Delegate has it all - history, tranquil beauty and majestic forests.

Delegate: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Early Settlers Hut


The Early Settlers Hut is situated one kilometre south-west of the township of Delegate on the Bonang Highway and is not only of unique local significance, but has associations going back to the earliest establishment of European settlement in the colony.

The building is of the type erected by squatters in the mid-1840s when they were first given some form of permanent occupancy and this hut undoubtedly dates from this period.

Historical information points to the hut being used originally as a manager's residence (the first manager being Mr Donald Ross). When first constructed, the hut was not as large as it is today.

The hut has been restored using timbers obtained locally and worked with tools such as adzes and broad axes by local craftsmen practising skills of a bygone era.

The hut is open every day.
