Fort Bourke Stockade
The Fort Bourke Stockade is a re-creation of the stockade built by Major Thomas Mitchell when he was in conflict with the local Aborigines. The stockade is located 16 kilometres out of town on a road that passes beside a particularly beautiful wetland alive with birds. The replica fort is little more than a few logs near the river.
When wanting to visit the Fort Bourke Stockade, please drop in to the Back O' Bourke Exhibition Centre, as in order to get there is to pay a AUD10 deposit for a key to unlock the gate. Also when dropping into the centre, they can give you information and directions to the stockade.
