Lockhart, The Rock + Surrounds


The railway town of the Rock, nestled beneath the impressive Rock Hill, retains much of its Federation character. Stroll along the Heritage Trail and discover the story of the town, from the quaint row of churches to historic shop fronts, grand homes and The Avenue, a beautiful canopy of shade and colour.

For the more adventurous, there are walking and cycling trails to suit all ages and picnic areas to take in the surrounding beauty. The new walking track from the town leads straight to the top of The Rock Hill Nature Reserve, where outstanding views of old bushranger country make the climb worthwhile.

Nearby, the wide shady verandahs and shopfronts of Lockhart, a turn of the century town, have been classified by the National Trust. The award winning Sculpture and Heritage Trail includes impressive farm art, while local history is depicted in over 400 etched pavers.

The Doris Golder Wool Art Gallery, housed in Greens Gunyah Museum, showcases incredible portraits created using 100% natural wool.

A short drive from the town takes you to the summit of Galore Hill, hideout of the infamous bushranger Mad Dog Morgan. Today the lookout tower provides stunning views across the ever-changing landscape.
