“Every time I come here, I have the sense that I am discovering a forgotten territory.”
Step back in time at Yerranderie Regional Park, where an intriguing former mining settlement turned ghost town is nestled within a vast and rugged wilderness landscape.
Getting to Yerranderie involves following 76km of dirt road, which only highlights the sense of discovering a land that time forgot.
Cradled under stately escarpments and among wildlife-filled forest lies a unique area with a fascinating mining history. This, combined with its rugged wilderness, makes Yerranderie popular with history buffs, heritage enthusiasts, photographers, and intrepid 4WD enthusiasts alike.
Stroll along the main street of the township and poke around the historic buildings, take short bushwalks into the surrounding bushland, or go 4WD touring along the incredible Oberon Colong historic stock route. At the Yerranderie silver mining fields, you can peer down into the mine from the bridge that lies across the top of one of the large mineshafts.
