Trunkey Creek

Blayney Road, Trunkey Creek NSW 2795
Trunkey Creek is a lovely old gold mining village. The hills around Trunkey Creek is honeycombed with abandoned mine shafts and mullock heaps and together with the crumbling mud huts and brick chimneys are the only remains of the goldrush age. Gold can still be obtained from the quartz rocks that were left lying around the old mullock heaps. The district was one of the earliest pastoral areas to be established. Some of the early selections were surveyed in the 1820's. The present day pastoralists in the area, produce some of Australia's top quality Merino wool. Today Trunkey Creek is a quiet rustic rural village. The Hotel and Billabong teahouse provide a service for visitors. Another unusual and special attraction is provided by pioneer craft demonstrations given by experienced bushmen. Wood skills, earth, mud and stone wall building, blacksmith's and gold panning are some of the skills demonstrated. Wool festival, sheep show and horse show - Saturday, October long weekends (annual) are highlights of the Trunkey Creek year.

Abercrombie Caves

via Trunkey Creek, Trunkey Creek NSW 2795
The entrance to the Abercrombie Caves is through the majestic Archway. Solid masses of marble decorate the walls of the caves highlighted by the soft natural light entering from each end. More than a century ago goldminers built a platform for dances in one of the main galleries. Today the historic dance floor is used as a stage for underground concerts, weddings and Christmas carols. The bushrangers cave was once the hideout for the Ribbon Gang, led by the ill-fated Ralph Entwistle, who began life on the run after being caught swimming nude in the Macquarie River at Bathurst. The caves are surrounded by native bush on a 1400 hectare Nature Reserve. There are swimming holes in the creek as well as a public fossicking area within the camping area. At the southern end of the Abercrombie Caves Nature Reserve are the Grove Creek Falls.
