Situated on undulating plains west of the Great Dividing Range,
is a great place to uncover the secrets of space at the CSIRO's radio telescope, better known as 'The Dish'. The Observatory played a role in the 1969 moon landing.
The area also has an interesting bushranger history and a long tradition as a gold-mining centre.
