The cemetery of Nelligan is a bit outside of the village, it is best to drive there by car !
Some of the graves are in the woods, some are spread over the hill. I had a little walk around that cemetery because I was looking for european names and inscriptions.
Be carefull, where you step, I almost had a severe problem with some insects - read more about it in my "Danger & Warning-tips" !

The Military Museum of Uralla is obviously a private project, and unfortunately it was closed already, when I passed by. I am not too much into military things, but I still stoped for some pics and took a look into one of the windows - see my last photo !
There are some more pics on the museum's webpage below !

Thunderbolt's Rock is an impressive rock outside of the village of Uralla and it is also a good place for a rest with a lot of places to park your car and there are benches and even a picknick-table. Maybe it might even be a place to spend the night in your motorhome.
Obviously Thunderbolt was hiding in that area and this is where that name comes from.

Thunderbolt's Grave is a bit out of the town-centre, maybe its best to take a look at the map that you will get at the tourist information-centre (next to the thunderbolt-monument!)
You will be able to park your car directely at the cemetery and will find the grave right at the entrance ! Take a look around for other graves as well, you will even find celtic crosses there like in Ireland (My last picture)

Wollongong is just about 10km from this temple and so you can combine both places into a daytrip from Sydney or another place closeby.
Wollongong has some interesting architecture in the old part of the city, great beaches, a lighttower and lots of good shopping-facilities for tourists !
Read more about it in my Wollongong-page!

You will find a lot of churches in Murrurundi and this one - next to the town-museum - was turned into a museum as well and an exhibition-hall. They had a bridal exhibition there inside that church and I was able to take some photos of its interior through the windows.

This was the very first well and pump of Murrurundi and it was built at this place, in the very centre of the village in 1844. It was place to take the water from there into the houses and in the 1920s this trough was added for animals, mainly dogs and horses. You will find this well next to the church of the "Uniting Church" and opposite of the museum.
In my last 3 pictures: The "Uniting Chrurch"

This is the interior of the catholic church of Harden / Murrumburrah and what I found very interesting there is some kind of a carpet introducing different local families and their members - read more about it in my travelogues !

This might be a place of interest for all enthousiasts for trains and everything beeing connected with them: I saw this building right behind the men's shed, it is obviously out of order and most of its windows are broken now.
In my last picture you can see a crane that was obviously also used to load trains in ancient times.
@KIWI: in my 2nd picture you can see the backside of the men's shed and the high grass growing on the side of the train-station, just in case that you want to mow the grass there ! ;-)

Once that you came so far off the beaten path in New South Wales as Dungog, do yourself a favour and drive on another 12 km in order to get to Stroud, a historical village founded already in 1824. You will see some great buildings there and the famous Monkerai bridge, the 2nd oldest wooden bridge of its kind in New South Wales.
In Stroud you will also find a good resting-place, where you can park your camper overnight (my last photo here).
