Arts, culture and heritage in Lockhart
The town of Lockhart is classified by the National Trust; it's known for the main street's deep, shady verandahs. Admire the beautifully restored building facades and verandahs while wandering around the town's craft and antique shops.
Lockhart is at the centre of an agricultural heartland that produces wheat, sheep, cattle and poultry. This picture-postcard town, 535 km south-west of Sydney, is listed by the National Trust. Its old-world charm lies in its buildings – the verandahs, ornate lacework and carefully restored facades.
Stretch your legs on the walking tracks at Galore Hill Nature Reserve. Check out Morgan's Cave, where bushranger Dan 'Mad Dog' Morgan is said to have hidden while on the run. On a clear day, you can see Mt Kosciuszko and the Victorian Alps from the top of the three-kilometre Yerong nature track at the Rock Nature Reserve.
