Type Weekend Trip
Leader Mario & Miran Poli
Take a weekend away to step back in time and discover a chapter of NSW's gold rush history. Starting in Bathurst, we will take the Root Hog Crossing/Bridle Track route to Hill End, a small remnant village of colonial NSW and its gold rush history. Staying overnight in 100 year old first class locomotive sleeper cabins will allow us the time to slowly appreciate the history of Hill End. Dogs on a leash are welcome.
After a hearty breakfast, a late start next morning will see us on our way for a stop at Sofala, Australia's oldest surviving gold town, before following some 4wd tracks along the Turon River on our way back home.
Low range, high clearance vehicles required. Max 10 vehicles.
Contact Mario for more information and to book.
