Pleasant Hills: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Henty Government Dam Nature Reserve


The Henty Government Dam Nature Reserve is a delight for bird lovers, where up to 140 different bird species either make their home or migrate for the season.

Two walking tracks throughout the reserve were developed by the Henty Rotary Club to allow visitors to enjoy the native vegetation and regional wildlife and form a part of a wildlife corridor between Henty and Pleasant Hills. A picnic ground has been created by the Rotary Club of Henty.

Sergeant Smyth Memorial


Henty is known locally for its connections with the bushranger 'Mad Dan' Morgan. Two kilometres west of town on the Pleasant Hills Road is a memorial stone on the site where Morgan shot Sergeant Thomas Smyth in September 1864.

The new plaque was erected by the NSW Police Service and reads 'A memorial to Senior Sergeant Thomas Smyth, aged 29. A member of the NSW Police Force shot by bushranger Dan Morgan in the surrounding hills on 4 September 1864. Senior Sergeant Smyth received a gunshot wound to his left shoulder and convalesced at the Imperial Hotel, Albury until 29 September 1864 where he haemorrhaged as a result of the gunshot wound and died. He is buried in an unmarked grave in the Albury cemetery.'

Visitors interested in the infamous tales of 'Mad Dan' Morgan can also visit the John McLean Memorial in Culcairn and Morgan's Lookout at Walla Walla.

The Henty Man


Located between the towns of Henty and Culcairn on the Olympic Highway, is the Henty Man. This man was originally shaped by an itinerant worker in the early 1930s from a tree burnt out by a swagman's fire. It became a district landmark until it was destroyed by natural elements about 20 years later.

Prior to Henty's Centenary in 1986, it was decided by local identities to restore 'The Man' for that occasion, and this was done with the help of the former Culcairn Shire Council. At the Centenary celebrations, Councillor Hugh McKay dedicated it to the men of the road, who had to walk the length and breadth of Australia during the Great Depression seeking work.

The Henty Man is now an RTA rest area with picnic tables, refuse bins and toilets.

Henty Golf Course


Improvements have been made to the course, with three bridges built to facilitate the movement of golf carts. The club was presented with two powered golf carts by the NSW Golf Foundation in 2006. A heavier bridge was built over the dam to allow the tractor to cross.

The big change to the course has been the sale of 7.33 acres of the north-western corner to Vitality Life for the Sweetwater Retirement Village. The sale forced the relocation of the seventh green, the work done with a working bee and six trucks bringing in fill to build up the green. The 10th, 17th and 18th fairways vanished and had to be incorporated within the rest of the course with some of the holes being shortened and others lengthened.

The 18 hole sand green golf course is regarded as being one of the best in terms of being very well maintained. The season runs from April through to September. New members and visitors are always welcome.
