Eugowra #39

1. Central Hotel, Eugowra
2. Rocky outcrops
3. Museum and bushranger centre

Australia's only large gold escort robbery occurred at Escort Rock just outside Eugowra by Frank Gardener's bushranger gang which also included Ben Hall.  The rocky outcrops that surround the area provided perfect cover for the bushrangers.  Today the area supplies granite from these rocks.

The town of Eugowra sprung up beside a river on one of the large stations in the area, with pubs and shops joining together to make a town in the 1860s.

There are quite a lot of murals decorating the walls of the old shops, unfortunately I didn't get a shot of one of these.
