Old Bonalbo

Nestled at the base of ‘Nooloiga’, or Haystack Mountain, this ideal setting ignites your senses providing an instant appreciation of the story telling of the cultural significance and history of the surrounding area.

Nestled against the magnificent Richmond Ranges, in rural Northern New South Wales, Old Bonalbo was established to cater for the growing population of ‘Cedar Getters’ seeking the red gold from the surrounding forests and the arrival of graziers establishing vast land holdings. It began life in the mid nineteenth century as the original site for the village of Bonalbo, later established thirteen kilometres further south on the banks of Peacock Creek. Old Bonalbo lies on the Clarence Way which connects the Mt Lindesay Highway in the north and the Bruxner Highway to the south at approximately the halfway point.
