Arts, culture, history and heritage in Dalgety
Dalgety is a historic village and was a proposed site for the nation's capital. It's a very tranquil location on the banks of the Snowy River.
Dalgety was gazetted as a site for the national capital in 1904, just a few years after Federation. The granite outcrops that surround the town make a dramatic natural feature, giving it the moody atmosphere that was captured in Ray Lawrence's thriller, Jindabyne. Be sure to take the historic town and river walk to see the remaining heritage buildings in this idyllic country setting.
