MOLONG

Absorb the history in Molong - Aboriginal, architectural, rural. A picturesque, old-world centre boasting country arts, crafts and retail surrounded by rolling grazing countryside.

Historic buildings, a National Trust classified Main Street, leafy streets and rolling countryside greet visitors to Molong. The name Molong is from an Aboriginal word meaning “place of many rocks”.

Classified by the National Trust, the main street is a good example of early Austen-European architecture complimenting the many historic buildings scattered throughout the town.

The town lays claim to the burial place of explorer Sir Thomas Mitchell’s indigenous tracker - Yuranigh. The site is marked on the Mitchell Highway towards Orange by Aboriginal scar trees. Yuranigh was a man of special honour after accompanying Sir Mitchell on an expedition to Queensland in 1845.

The area has a long rural history producing wheat, sheep, wool, cattle, fruit and wine. Cellar doors, galleries, cafes, restaurants, country pubs, charming B&B’s and other accommodation draw visitors to the area in search of a relaxed country experience.

Crafters are especially drawn by the reputation attached to the Yarn Market. The recycled metal art of Caldwell Molong is a real drawcard for visitors.

Molong hosts many unique events including the – Molong Music and Arts Festival, NSW Sheep Dog Trials, markets and one of the largest NSW Motorcycle Safety Rides.

Molong is well serviced by a hospital, a number of doctors, a dentist, veterinary clinic, a Central School (kindergarten to year 12), a Catholic Primary School, playgroup and preschool.
