Dalgety

On the banks of the famous Snowy River sits the historic village of Dalgety the only town left on the Snowy River in New South Wales since the flooding of the old towns of Jindabyne and Adaminaby. Previously known as Buckley’s Crossing the township was once a major stock crossing from Gippsland to the Snowy Moutains High Country at a time when bullock trains were an important mode of transport. In 1902 Dalgety was a proposed site for the Nation's Capital, missing out due to it's close proximity to Victoria. Situated on the Monaro Plains and in the rain shadow of the Snowy Mountains, Dalgety is a relatively dry area of rolling hills with granite boulders scattered across the landscape.
