Ancient Aboriginal Culture
FINCHLEY CULTURAL WALK
Yengo National Park and the surrounding areas are an important spiritual and cultural place for the Darkinjung and Wonnarua People for thousands of years. There are over 640 recorded Aboriginal cultural sites in the park and nearby areas. This mountain is also known as 'Uluru of the East' and as sacred, as that of Uluru itself. The Finchley Cultural Walk gives people a real understanding and respect for one of the best Aboriginal sacred sites in Australia
Greater Northern Trading Post Wine Bar
GREAT NORTHERN TRADING POST WINE BAR
The Great North Trading Post (GNTP), also known as the Laguna Wine Bar, is located about 10 minutes’ drive outside of Wollombi. It's best described as being one of those good old fashioned country style pubs that you would expect to find in outback Australia. There’s a beautifully built old wooden bar that actually doubles as a bottle shop and grocery store, even a games room out the back complete with pool table and juke box. Come for a feed, a drink, and enjoy live band entertainment, ice and gas.
