Milparinka Gymkhana

Milparinka-Hawker Gate Road, Milparinka NSW 2880
The Milparinka Gymkhana is held annually on the second Saturday of the NSW July School Holidays. The day long event takes place on the Milparinka Sports Grounds, just on the north side of Milparinka, alongside the Evelyn Creek. The gymkhana is a truly bush family day affair, with riders bringing their horses from local station properties as well as some distance away in Queensland and South Australia. The riders, aged from about two years to, well, who knows, compete in a range of events including novelties such as the bending race, or flat races such as the Milparinka Cup. All days meals are available, and at night, after prize presentation, entertainment to get everyone up and dancing. Visitors are welcome to join locals at the Milparinka Gymkhana each July....

Milparinka Courthouse Interpretive Centre

Loftus Street, Milparinka NSW 2880
Designed by Colonial architect James Barnet and built in 1896, the Milparinka Courthouse is a classic example of the fine design and construction of the day. Its function as a courthouse ceased in the 1920s and by the 1980s the building was in disrepair. Restored by the local community, the beautiful sandstone building today forms the hub of the Milparinka Heritage Precinct. Interpretive panels explain the region's history from Aboriginal times, through exploration to settlement. Family histories can be explored though the many references available. During the school holiday periods, activities are available to engage younger people in learning about the region's natural and human history. No visit to Milparinka can be complete without a visit to the Courthouse....

Pimpara Lake Stationstay

Pimpara Lake Station, Milparinka NSW 2880
Pimpara Lake Station is a 44,000 hectare sheep and cattle property located west of the Silver City Highway, 200 kilometres north of Broken Hill. Since purchasing the property in 1980 the owners, Jon and Ruth Sandow, have actively engaged in sustainable water and pasture conservation practices that support livestock production and, at the same time, enhance habitat for wildlife, including forty man-made watering points. Self-guided or guided property tours are designed to demonstrate these conservation activities and provide many opportunities for observing and photographing the wildlife and natural landscapes. Night skies are often clear and enable serious star watching and photography. Accommodation options include secluded campsites (ideal for families and bird-watchers), and self-catering shearers' quarters for up to twelve guests (linen can be provided upon request). The Homestead B and B enables closer interaction between guests and Pimpara Lake's owners, with home-style meals served in the homestead dining room. ...
