Dalton was once described in early records as “the haunt of cattle duffers, bushrangers and robbery under arms…” Today this peaceful small town protects its heritage with pride and dedication.
An amazing fossil leaf deposit with particularly fine detail has been preserved in Dalton. This 40 million year old fossil can be seen under a shelter in the park next to Oolong Creek.
Tied to the hitching rail of the Royal Hotel (c1865), are two amazing steel sculptures of Australian stock horses. This hotel is a regular stopping point for car and motorcycle clubs but the whole family is welcome to enjoy a relaxing afternoon on the verandah and watch the sun set on an idyllic part of the Australian bush.
A little known but interesting fact is that the town is situated on a fault line in the earth’s crust and receives minor but persistent tremors.
