Yuranigh Pond

Fancy a picnic by a tranquil pond just six kilometres out of town on Emmet Road? The pond was named after Yuranigh an Aboriginal Australian from Molong in New South Wales. Yuranigh worked as a guide for Sir Thomas Mitchell, safely guiding his expedition team through vast unpopulated country. His quiet confidence earned him the explorer's friendship and respect. So, as you picnic by the pond, you can 'ponder' the story of its namesake!
