Hillston is known for its very long, straight main street. With the Lachlan River on its doorstep and two parks providing picnic areas right down to the river’s edge plus exceptional facilities, the town becomes a great place to stop and linger.
One of the parks is the former site of the original Hillston Hall, and this now has well landscaped gardens which lead to the swinging bridge across the River.
On the other side of the bridge is a small shady area which features “animals” made from fallen trees.
You’ll recognise a crocodile, large redback spider and an ominous prehistoric monster.
