Harden Gold Trail Festival 2014

At the Bushranger’s Dinner
The town of Harden/Murrumburrah was deck out in wonderful period costumes made by several talented ladies of the village. Margaret (centre) made the beautiful red outfit she is wearing and the other two outfits also. A Bushranger’s Dinner was held at the Mechanics Hall on Saturday Evening with a very lively Bush Band from Canberra which encouraged guests to take to the dance floor and enjoy the fun of old time dancing.

The Gold Trail Festival celebrates the history of the area - from the finding of gold, re-enactment of the attacks by bushranger Ben Hall and his gang in the 1860's, Cobb & Co coach rides, bush dancing and fellowship and fun.

Harden/Murrumburrah is on Burley Griffin Way and boasts of cafes which will happily cater for all your travelling needs.
