"VISIT ROCKLEY- OBERON -BEN CHIFLEY DAM" Bathurst Off The Beaten Path Tip by balhannah
Bathurst Off The Beaten Path: 10 reviews and 26 photos
We did a round tour from Bathurst to Oberon, had hoped to see “Mayfield Gardens” near Oberon which are one of the best in Australia.
Unfortunately, they were only open on the weekend, so did not get to see them. These gardens are open in October, AND the Admission fee in 2009 was $20.
We did find ROCKLEY, which is another historical village, listed by the National Trust.
It is one of the oldest settlements outside of Bathurst. Copper & Gold were also found in this area, and once again, there are some lovely old buildings. Ben Hall, the bushranger, held up the Bank of New South Wales (b1878)
There is a nice park, which has Public Toilets which is located beside the weir on Pepper's Creek. The water was so clear that I could see quite a few Fish.
The drive to and from Rockley was pretty, altogether this was a scenic & interesting day's outing.
