Mount Horeb: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Adelong Falls Gold Mill Ruins

The Adelong Falls Gold Mill Ruins is a state listed heritage industrial site. Situated 1.5 kilometres from Adelong, and just over 20 kilometres from Tumut, it is a must see destination.

The interpretive area, providing a comprehensive history of the site, and viewing platform are wheelchair accessible from the lower car park. For the more nimble, a walk of about an hour leads down from the platform to Adelong Creek and the ruins. There are signposts along the route describing the various items relating to the site.

The remarkable stone ruins of the ingenious Reefer ore crushing machine, built by Scotsmen David Wilson and William Ritchie, remain for all visitors to view from the platform, or wander through to interpret how reef ore was processed. This mill processed ore from miners from Adelong and the wider district and ceased operation in 1914.

The Adelong Falls is a popular swimming hole during the warmer months and a great spot for walking and picnics.

A great little walk to relax and wander with the whole family!

Gundagai Memorial Cairns

There are three Memorial Cairns in Gundagai.

One is the Rose Inn Cairn situated on the Gundagai Golf Course on Middleton Drive. This Cairn is to commemorate the Public House that was constructed by Thomas Lindley which was part of Old Gundagai that was lost in the 1852 flood.

Many explorers passed close to Gundagai on their way to Port Phillip Bay including: Hume and Hovell, Charles Sturt and Edward John Eyre. This is marked by Cairn in the River Caravan Park. This is also the spot where Sturt crossed the Murrumbidgee River for the first time.

The third Cairn is located on O I Bell Drive (Gundagai Common) and was the site where the National School was built that was lost in the great flood. The Master and Mistress and their five children all drowned.
