Crookwell  New South Wales

There’s plenty to keep you occupied in and around this picturesque town at the top of the Great Dividing Range, about 240km or so south-west of Sydney.

At the centre of prime merino sheep country, Crookwell is also a major producer of seeds for the potato growing industry. This beautiful town, which gets its share of snow in winter, has some spectacular gardens, both private and public, many of which are open to visitors in spring and autumn.

Trout fishing is a popular pastime in pristine streams which carve their way through the countryside. The first rainbow and brown trout to be released in Australia went into the Wollondilly River near here in 1888.

The region is punctuated by quaint old villages that bear the stamp of a gold and copper mining and a bush-ranging past.

One of those satellite villages, Roslyn, was the birthplace in 1865 of acclaimed poet and social activist Dame Mary Gilmore.

In those days the tiny settlement was known as Cotta Walla and Gilmore's father, a property manager and builder, is reputed to have translated some of the local Wiradjuri Aborigine's legends and songs into English and Gaelic.
