Fire affected area
Some areas of this park were affected by fire in 2019/2020. You’ll notice some changes to the landscape, as well as signs of recovery. Some areas may remain closed for longer to allow habitat to recover or because we’re repairing park infrastructure. Stay safe with these after-fire tips for visitors.
At this early mining settlement you can explore a NSW ghost town that’s been lovingly preserved, with many relics remaining. It’s also a great area to go 4WD touring.
Yerranderie Private Town is one of NSW’s most authentic, unchanged silver mining ghost towns, having been carefully preserved to retain its historic past. Accessed via 4WD Oberon Colong historic stock route, the buildings, including the post office, tailor shop, general store, bank and residential cottages, have been restored to their original condition as accurately as possible, and the displays are all of genuine relics collected by miners over the decades.
Take a tour of the nearby silver mining fields, the most prominent of which are Silver Peak Mine, Colon Peak Mine, Wonga Mine and Wollondilly Mine. A bridge has been installed across the top of one of the large mineshafts on Silver Peak Mine, so you can gaze right down into the mine.
It’s also a great spot to see interesting wildlife, as the township is set in a large sanctuary with mobs of grey kangaroos, wombats, wallabies, walleroos and mountain birds in natural bushland. Stay overnight at Private Town campground and enjoy scenic bushwalking in the adjacent wilderness area.
