Explore Historic Picton

The Picton district is rich in Aboriginal and European history. A colourful tapestry interweaves the Dreamtime legends of the Gundungurra, Darug and Dharawal people on a backdrop of gorges, ranges and plains with a rural patchwork created by the white settlers who followed the first fleet’s famous straying cattle to the Cowpastures.

Granted the weather is on your side, it’s the perfect way to step not only into history but the shoes of a local and experience the sights, sounds and smells of Picton. The self guided tour covers 29 stops to visit at your leisure. These include the Old Picton Post Office, St Marks Church of England, National Australian Bank, George IV Inn, the Mushroom Tunnel, the Railway Precinct and the Viaduct among many more.
