Tourism Wellington


Dargo township is located in the foothills of the Dargo High Plains. The area is a great location for outdoor adventure activities including 4WD touring, rafting, fishing and canoeing.

The area is also an excellent destination for horse riding, bush walking and hiking. Panning for gold still remains a popular activity but you can also visit the gold panning museum for an up close look at a gold nugget.
