Wallaroo is Made for Walking

Walking Wallaroo

There is a walking track from Owen Terrace, down past the Cutter "Canberra" display to the foreshore. From there, it is not far to the jetty. Perhaps walk out to the end and back, or on to the marina, and perhaps have lunch or a coffee at the Coopers Alehouse Wallaroo.

You could walk around the marina to North Beach, and then along the beach to the North Beach Township. There is a walking track off Otago Road to North Beach, that you might like to try.


Historic Walks

There are a quite a few historical buildings from the early mining and smelting days of Wallaroo. You can walk to them all by yourself, or you can get together a group of ten or more and organise a guided walk with a guide provided by the museum. There will be a charge in this case, and notice is required. (Contact the Museum

If you Decide to do the walk yourself, there is an excellent guide to Wallaroo's historical buildings on the Council Website, providing photos, a description of the original purpose of each building, and a map to enable you to find your way around. The guide is printable.

Either method will take you to all the important heritage sites including the old Post Office, old Bond Store, Cornucopia Hotel, Wallaroo Town Hall, Railway Station, Sonbern Lodge Motel, St Mary's Anglican Church, Wallaroo Primary School, residence of Caroline Carleton, Rotunda, Weeroona Hotel, Police Station and residence, Court House, Customs House, Hughes Chimney Stack, and Bew's Square.
