Camden is a wonderful rural heritage area full of beautiful country side, historic buildings and The Wollondilly Heritage Centre where we will stop for a fascinating peek into the area’s past.  It offers a fabulous interactive museum and focuses on the agricultural and mining industry and Aboriginal Culture is also well represented. Upon our arrival we will be greeted with a delicious homemade morning tea including slices and scones. We will then have a DVD Presentation and guided Tour of this forever changing museum. The exhibitions bring you unique stories of the people of Wollondilly with the displays regularly changing, some of the exhibitions include a fully furnished Pioneer Slab Cottage, Working Fruit Grader, Faces and Places Building and From Farm to Table Pavilion.

We will return to the present day and continue our journey to The Camden Valley Inn where we will have our lunch. The Inn was built in the early 1930’s, originally as a Milk Bar, nestled at Camden Park at the base of the Razorback Mountains. The land on which the Inn stands is also steeped in colourful history, being part of the original grant to Captain John and Elizabeth Macarthur in 1805. It was to his Camden Park Estate that Macarthur brought the first Merino sheep and pioneered the great Australian Wool Industry of today. After our day full of history and with full bellies we will return to Sydney.
