This is the extra images, route map and additional bits and pieces from my four day bikepacking trip around the Central West of NSW.
It’s one thing to read an account about a region, or watch a video about a trip, but it’s something quite different to be riding its trails.
In a world of personal challenges and attempts to break records, I don’t really fit. I love to explore new places and I’m happy doing it mostly on my own. But I don’t need to cycle a hundred miles to get there.
Gulgong comes from Wiradjuri people, meaning “deep waterhole”
Henry Lawson lived briefly in Gulgong as a child in the 1870’s while his father tried to get rich quick with gold mining.
Gulgong came into existence after gold was discovered at Red Hill in 1870. The township was surveyed in August 1870. By the end of that year there were 800 people on the diggings, which yielded over 32 tons of gold in the 1870s
