Yerranderie Village a Ghost Town
It is set in an Historic Silver Mining area, listed on the register of the National Estate and in a large private sanctuary abounding with mobs of grey forrester kangaroos, wombats, wallabies, walleroos and mountain birds in natural bushland. It is the hub of a scenic walking area adjacent to the wilderness. Now managed by NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service so leave your pets and firearms at home.
