The gateway to spectacular scenery! Full of native scenery and wildlife, Bargo carries a rich Indigenous history. The town’s name was coined during the 1800s after botanist George Caley’s Aboriginal guide Mowatiin, who referred to the area as meaning ‘place of cliffs’ or ‘thick shrubs’. It was in both the Bargo and Yanderra areas that the white settlers first recorded sightings of the Koala, Lyrebird and Wombat. Ex-convict John Wilson noted three animals in his diary describing the lyrebird as a pheasant, hence the name “Pheasants Nest”. Bargo is located only a short drive to the Nepean and Avon Dams, offering beautiful views and picnic areas. For a bite to eat, be sure to check out Hotel Bargo and if travelling in a crow, retire to the luxury boutique-style accommodation at Kalinya Estate.
