150 km north-west of Sydney, via Capertee on the Lochaber Road. Roads are unpaved, and you'll need a 4WD vehicle. The open eucalypt forest and river oaks of historic Turon Valley were once the site of one of the state's major goldfields, and the area is rich in colonial and Aboriginal heritage. The river offers excellent trout fishing (fishing licence required). There are opportunities for remote bushwalking (no formal tracks). The river offers swimming and canoeing when the water is high.
