"Scone- Interesting scenery"

Known as the Horseracing capital of Australia with over 70 horse studs, Scone is located 255 kms North West of Sydney. Scone has some good historical buildings to see as well as the Scone Museum. Visit the Australian Stock Horse Museum and wonder through the arts and crafts shop. Don’t forget to visit the information centre and winery. In the area is the World heritage Listed Barrington Top and 15 Kms away is Lake Glenbawn where you can see the Museum of Natural Life, go for a bushwalk or have a picnic or BBQ at the facilities provided. Scone has good accommodation facilities and ample shopping.
