This lush Country NSW town in the Albury area, with tree-lined streets and pretty parks, is like an oasis in the Riverina. Culcairn is located in the growth corridor between Wagga Wagga and Albury-Wodonga.
From 1862 until 1865, the Culcairn area was the stamping ground of notorious bushranger Dan "Mad Dog" Morgan. Morgan's stand-off at Round Hill Station in 1864 resulted in the death of station overseer John McLean and a bounty of Â£1,000 being placed on Morgan's head. Climb to the summit of Morgan's Lookout and admire the pattern of the paddocks below.
Whether it's enjoying history or nature, there are plenty of things to see and do around Culcairn. With many spots to rest along the way and timber sleepers for seating, the Culcairn Bike Track suits all levels of fitness and is a great way to explore the town. The seven-kilometre loop track is split into sections. Don't miss a casual lunch in the delightful gardens at the rear of the historic Culcairn Hotel.
