Things to do in Lockhart Shire

Lockhart The Verandah Town
The Heritage Town of The Rock

A visit to Lockhart Shire will surprise and charm you. Walk wide shady verandahs; discover the life and times of Lockhart and district as depicted in over 400 images etched in the pavers of the ‘The Verandah Town’. Lockhart and The Rock exhibit fine examples of typical turn of the century architecture.

Browse through the shops or visit the Museum and Doris Golder Wool Art Gallery, walk the Pastoral Shadows of Brookong, or view one of the many wonderful Farm Art Sculptures on display throughout the town. Experience unique shopping with friendly service and easy parking. Enjoy coffee, a relaxed lunch or evening meal in one of the cafes, hotels or club. 

The Rock also offers a choice of café, hotel or club meals, or perhaps enjoy a picnic in one of the pretty parks, under the shady ‘Avenue’ or perhaps at the base of The Rock Hill Reserve. Climb to the top for spectacular views.

Enjoy visiting The Pleasant Hills Hotel, the first community hotel in NSW. Here you will enjoy the company and the stories of the locals. Perhaps spend some time at the Yerong Creek Bowling Club, the meeting point in Yerong Creek which is the oldest village in the Lockhart Shire.

Visit Lockhart Shire and be rewarded with beautiful scenery and a sense of history, peppered with pride.
