Thunderbolt's Grave

Uralla Pioneer Cemetery, Uralla NSW 2358
The last of the New South Wales bushrangers, Frederick Wordsworth Ward, better known as "Captain Thunderbolt", ruled the highways and byways of the New England region and beyond for much of the 1860s. He met an untimely death when shot and killed by Constable Alexander Walker on 25th May, 1870 at Kentucky Creek, near Uralla. His remains were laid to rest in a quiet ceremony at the Uralla Pioneer Cemetery in John Street. The headstone was erected fifty years later by residents of Uralla after funds were collected by public appeal. There is now controversy over who is actually buried in the grave ... or whether anyone is buried there at all!
Alma Park Logo and Images

Alma Park

Queen Street, Uralla NSW 2358
Established during the 1880s, Alma Park received its name in 1893 when local school children assembled to plant one hundred trees within its grounds. The first tree was planted by Alma O'Connor, daughter of the Mayor, Alderman O'Connor, and the park now bears her name in remembrance of the occasion. In springtime, brightly coloured flower beds complement the many grand old trees planted by Alma and her friends all those years ago. A meandering pathway leads visitors past a locally forged iron lace rotunda and down to the picturesque Uralla Creek where an ageing footbridge beckons walkers to continue on to the slightly more challenging walk around nearby Mount Mutton. Alma Park is a peaceful and relaxing place to stop for a break with plenty of room for caravan and campervan parking. Facilities in the park include toilets, a children's playground and two free electric barbecues.

Thunderbolt's Statue and Constable Walker Memorial

Bridge Street, Uralla NSW 2358
Casting his steely gaze over Uralla's main street, the life sized statue of bushranger Captain Thunderbolt, was produced as a Bicentennial project. It was designed and cast by sculptor, Denis Adams and unveiled in 1988. Today the statue is popular with tourists and photographers alike. A few metres east of the Thunderbolt Statue, is the often over-looked memorial to Constable Alexander Binning Walker, the Officer who brought an end to the bushranger's career. The memorial was produced in 1970, at the time of the centenary of the death of Captain Thunderbolt. To show their gratitude to Walker for ridding them of the menace of bushranging, local residents raised money for him, while the Sons of Temperance Movement awarded him a gold watch. Walker was later sent to Victoria to join the hunt for the Kelly Gang. Towards the end of his career he was promoted to Acting Inspector-General of Police.

Dangars Lagoon and Racecourse Lagoon

Thunderbolt's Way, Uralla NSW 2358
Dangars Lagoon is situated approximately four kilometres south of Uralla along Thunderbolt's Way. During wet seasons, large numbers of water birds can be observed from the bird hide, located at the southern end of the lagoon. Although water levels at the lagoon vary dramatically from season to season, there are many varieties of birds that call the lagoon home. Racecourse Lagoon is located three kilometres south-west of Uralla and is accessible from Plane Avenue. The 'Anaiwan' people lived at Racecourse Lagoon as it provided a source of food and a place for religious ceremonies. It has now become a breeding, nesting, and feeding site for birds, and it provides a refuge for other animals in times of drought. The site is protected as Endangered Ecological Communities under the NSW Threatened Species Conservation Act. Racecourse Lagoon is a beautiful place for picnicking, walking, bird watching, nature study, and for photography.

Gostwyck Chapel

Gostwyck Road, Uralla NSW 2358
Officially known as 'All Saints Anglican Church', Gostwyck Chapel was built in 1921 in memory of Major Clive Collingwood Dangar who lost his life during World War I. The chapel was constructed entirely of bricks made and fired on Gostwyck Station. The stone wall surrounding the chapel was built to protect it from flood waters from the nearby Salisbury Waters. The magnificent tree lined avenue of 200 Elms was planted by a worker who was brought out from England specifically for the task. The site is a favourite for photographers, especially during the autumn months when the leaves of the Elm trees turn gold, providing the perfect backdrop for the Virginia Creeper covering the chapel, which changes to a brilliant red. Visitors are welcome to picnic in the grounds of the chapel, but are requested to respect the privacy of Gostwyck Station, its owners and employees.

Deeargee Woolshed Logo and Images

Deeargee Woolshed

Gostwyck Road, Uralla NSW 2358
Originally part of Gostwyck Station, Deeargee Station and its unique octagonal woolshed gained their name from the old Gostwyck wool brand, DRG, which stood for "Dangar, Gostwyck". The woolshed was built in 1872 replacing an earlier shearing shed that had been destroyed by fire. Designed and erected by Alexander Mitchell, who also built McCrossin's Mill in Uralla, the woolshed is erected on brick pillars with successive roofs of galvanised iron. The side walls contain large amounts of glass. The woolshed has all facilities required for shearing, pressing, bailing, sorting and other operations. It even has a lightning conductor. The Deeargee Woolshed is still in use today and, although not open to visitors, it is easily viewed from the roadside. Today the Gostwyck and Deeargee properties are known for producing some of Australia's finest wool. Both are 11 kilometres from Uralla on the Gostwyck Road.
