Barrington Tops National Park

Day trip to Merriwa
This is a great short day-trip and not just for the pie shop! The itinerary includes a number of very interesting landscapes, geological features and picnic areas. The Bottle Museum is well worth a visit, as is the regular museum.
Cycling Day Tour
Scone and the surrounding district are very popular for recreational and mountain biking, with stunning routes away from the main highway. Click on the link for a range of local cycling routes.
Goldfield town Nundle
Nundle is the start of the ‘Fossickers Way’ tourist route, with a rich history and Australia’s only operational woollen mill. The trout farm is well worth a visit – you might find Nundle trout on the dinner menu at Strathearn.
