"Sofala - Really step back in time and seek your fortune."

Sofala has a population of only 100 people and is situated 241 kms north west of Sydney. A visit to Sofala is like stepping back in time as Sofala is Australia’s oldest surviving Gold Rush Town. Unchanged since the Gold Rush days this town has amazing old buildings which are still in operation as shops today. As this town is on the Turon River with mountains behind many fossickers still come and try their luck fossicking or panning with the souvenir shop doing a roaring trade in equipment. Explore the upper reaches of the Turon River and see the old diggings some buildings and old graves. For accommodation the Old Gaol is now a B&B and Chesleigh Homestead is on 3000 acres of land with mountain lookouts, caves and creek and offers first class facilities.
