Date: Sat, 8 Jun to Mon 10 Jun, 2019
Type: Long weekend
Grade: D, with optional C
Leader: Mario & Miran Poli
Within sight of Sydney, yet so far away, seize this long weekend opportunity to come and admire the charm and history of Yerranderie.
Yerranderie is popular with history buffs and 4WD adventurers for its mining heritage, ghost town ambience, bushwalks and silver mine relics. It reached its peak in the early 1900s, before the onset of World War 1 saw its mining population decline, followed by its death in the 1950s when the construction of the Warragamba Dam cut direct access from Sydney. It’s now essentially a wilderness area, accessible only via the old Oberon Colong stock route taking a committed five hour drive from Sydney to get there.
The plan is to take the Caves to Caves route there and back, staying two nights in the Private Town. Sunday is an opportunity to leisurely explore the mining relics and ghost town ruins, go bushwalking, or just do nothing and relax.
Accommodation options range from check-in accommodation to camping, though limited spaces available and only for a limited time.
Suitable for all vehicles and camper trailers/caravans.
Contact Mario for more information or to book.
