Adelong

(4.9/5 based on 30+ reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: sightseeing
Adelong is a small town in the Riverina region of New South Wales, Australia and is a part of the Tumut Shire. In 2011, Adelong had an urban population of 884 people.The town is situated about 160 kilometres west of Canberra. It is on the Snowy Mountains Highway.HistoryThe town's name is said to be derived from an Aboriginal language meaning "along the way" or "plain with a river". The gold ran out in the latter part of the 19th century and the pastoral industry became the principal activity. This was mainly Merino sheep and beef cattle, and continues now. Over the last 20 years a tourist industry has developed because of the pleasant scenery and gold mining history. During the gold rush many Chinese people worked in the mines, a lot of whom died and were buried in a special portion of the Adelong cemetery. Unfortunately the Chinese portion of the cemetery was obliterated in the early 1900s. One or two elderly Chinese and Indians still lived in Adelong in the 1950s. A community named Cornishtown existed about a mile to the west of Adelong till the 1940s. The famous Adelong Falls, with its rich gold-mining past, is an ideal spot to have a leisurely picnic or to explore the unique surrounding area.
