The Rock

Let The Rock’s tree-lined Avenue of Honour draw you in to see the Federation shopfronts, quaint churches and local shops.

The inviting park-like thoroughfare honours the district’s World War I soldiers with a tree planted in memory of each. Look up and you’ll see the town’s namesake rising to the south of town. Take it from us, you can't miss it. It's often been called ‘the Lion of the Plains’ and known as Kengal Aboriginal Place, a significant site for the local Wiradjuri people. Climb to the top for some of the best views you can find of the surrounding landscape all year round. And don’t forget your camera, folks!

Marvel at exquisite detail in portraits made from wool, and delight in life’s simple pleasures in Lockhart. 

Walk the main street with its wide shady verandahs stretching overhead and you’ll soon see why it’s called the ‘Verandah Town’. 

As you wander, you’ll find our larger-than-life water tower mural drawing you in, alongside eye-catching sculptures and pavers underfoot with even more stories to tell.
