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.
Start at Eugowra Rocks, Eugowra (30 km south-east of Parkes); (02) 6392 3200
