Information

The open eucalypt forest and river oaks of historic Turon Valley were once the site of one of the state's major goldfields, and the area is rich in colonial and Aboriginal heritage. The river offers trout fishing (licence required).
There are opportunities for remote bushwalking (no formal tracks) and there's car-based camping at Woolshed Flat and The Diggings. The river offers swimming and canoeing when the water is high.
Access 150km north-west of Sydney, via Capertee on the Lochaber Road (unsealed, 4WD).
