Sofala is a very small village about 50 kilometres from Bathurst in country NSW.  It is located on the bans of the Turon River and people visit this area to try their luck gold panning or fishing in the waterways. This is an historic goldmining village and  one of the first areas in Australia to experience the colonial gold rush. 

Some of the streets are extremely narrow but worth a stops to see buildings from the 19th century gold rush, including a classic wooden pub call The Royal Hotel. The streets of the quaint village feature in Russell Drysdale’s Sofala - a famous Australian painting. There are some charming cottages and homesteads providing accommodation in this area as well as a number of camping spots.
