If you don’t want to venture too far afield, you can fish in the Bulloo River or net big blue yabbies. Take a walk along the Bulloo River to the Cobb and Co Crossing, or walk out to the Hydro Power Plant Display on the outskirts of town. Visit the historic Thargomindah Hospital building, which also serves as a Visitor Information Centre, or have a look through Leahy House, which is located just across the road from the Hotel/Motel. After a day of “exploring”, the Hotel Bar or Beer Garden is a popular spot for all guests to relax, and meet fellow travellers to exchange tales and ideas for the next day’s activities, before enjoying a hearty evening meal in the Hotel Dining Room.
