Condobolin - NSW RVFT
Condobolin is the largest centre in the heart of New South Wales and is home to around 3500 people. Affectionately known as Condo the town lies on the bank of the Lachlan River an hour from Parkes Forbes West Wyalong and Lake Cargelligo. Condobolin was gazetted in 1859 but for over 20 years prior it was essentially a stopover and river-crossing for drovers moving stock from the north and west of New South Wales to Victoria. Since the early settlers the Condobolin district has been a prime cropping and sheep and beef producing area. But when a major copper discovery was made north at Melrose in 1885 the town greatly benefited from the subsequent traffic. Gold was also found north-west at Overflow Station immortalised in Banjo Patersons poem Clancy of the Overflow in 1896 and a major copper and gold mine was eventually put into operation at Condobolin from 1898 until around 1910.
