ambition for Yerranderie is that it should be known as one of the
uniquely beautiful and special places of the world.
It has a good start.
It is situated on an old volcano, bordering the rugged
Kanangra/Boyd Wilderness, already listed as World Heritage.
The National Trust and the Heritage Commission have classified
the mines as a Historic Silver Mining Area.
It is a private wildlife sanctuary, with mobs of marsupials.
1959, all residents had to leave because access through the Burragorang
Valley was cut with the building of the Warragamba Dam and the creation
of huge Lake Burragorang.
Now it is isolated, serene, and scenically spectacular – just
what the city-weary traveller needs.
Accommodation is basic but comfortable.
It is not a five star resort.
Emphasis is on self-help but whatever your outdoor desires may
be, Yerranderie will provide.
Caretakers take care of you in Private Town and ensure you enjoy
your rest and recreation.
So, history buffs, adventure freaks, outdoor enthusiasts, eco-tourists, Yerranderie is for you. Special interest groups such as educationalists, social clubs, flora and fauna experts, geology gurus, nature lovers, bushwalkers, small conferencees (who want to get away from it all) come to Yerranderie. (Or if you are just a few friends or a family, you will enjoy the peace of the mountains.) Wake to the birdcalls of the lyrebirds and magpie. If you are energetic, you can climb the Peak before breakfast, walk to the waterholes for a picnic lunch, fossick on the mines, take a tour, learn the stories and. then watch the pink hour when sunset turns the blue mountain backdrop of the Yerranderie Amphitheatre to gold, pink and then mauve. If you are a spiritual or poetic type, you will be inspired. The animals and birds are magical as evening draws on. Then you will sleep the sleep of the super-satisfied.
