Explore the Wattle Flat Heritage Lands, which is a 250 hectare remnant bush-land reserve right next to the town. The evidence of past gold mining can be clearly seen, as can the rare Argyle Apple, a distinctive Eucalypt with attractive blue-grey foliage.
The Burree Trail takes 3 hours at a leisurely pace. Just follow the yellow triangles placed on trees along the trail. Buurree is Wiradjuri for Wattle. Wiradjuri people occupied the Wattle Flat Plateau prior to the European settlement and during the early nineteenth century.
Many rare and endangered species grow beside the trail and on the mountain slopes. Severely eroded ravines, remnants of gold workings from the c19 can be seen through the trees.
