Eugowra Bushranger Trail

Escort Rock, now a pleasant picnic spot, was the scene of Australia’s largest armed gold robbery  when Frank Gardiner, Ben Hall and other bushrangers held up a gold escort in 1862. Look for the  plaque, and you might even find a few old bullets. From here, you can take a driving route described  on the website (see below), which takes you to several other historic sites related to bushrangers. The  kids can have fun running around pretending to be bushrangers.
