Aramac


Description

Described as 'an oasis in the dry of the Central West', Aramac has undergone a recent transformation with the launch of the nationally recognised, Harry Redford Cattle Drive Re-enactment. In the main street of Aramac Stands the White Bull replica which tells the story of the most historically significant cattle stealing case ever recorded in Australia.

Henry 'Harry' Redford (better know as Captain Starlight) commenced this daring cattle 'duffing' feat on a property called Bowen Downs. As part of the recognition of this feat, you are able to browse through the Harry Redford Interpretive Centre in the main street of Aramac.

If droving is something you have always wanted to do, then Aramac is again the destination for you, where you can actively participate in the 'Harry Redford Cattle Drive', run annually through May and June. Take part in the associated events while you are on the cattle drive such as the Aramac Races, various live entertainment, Claypan Boogie, enter the camp cookout competition, or visit one of the camp sites to join their nightly, hearty camp oven droving meals.

While in Aramac visit the Aramac Tramway Museum and step back in time with relics like Aunt Emma, the long-serving rail motor.

Discover the fascinating country surrounding the township. Drive through the desert country and discover Lake Dunn. There's also fishing, water sports (sailing, water skiing), birdwatching, tennis, cabins, camping and very little traffic.

Make a stop at the Gray Rock Reserve and Horsetailers Gorge where Cobb and Co. stopped and spelled their horses, or join in the Artesian Country Tours to see Gracevale Caves and Mailman's Gorge with the region's most recognised historian, Tom Lockie. Learn the story about etched images of strange six-toed human footprints and the Central West's own Rainbow Serpent imprinted on the sandstone walls.
