Home of the White Bull

Aramac is one of the oldest towns in the central west. Originally known as Marathon, the town was later renamed after Robert Ramsay Mackenzie, the first explorer to the area who carved his name (R R Mac) on a tree. The tree was found by the explorer William Landsborough and the name Aramac was born.

While in town visit the Harry Redford Interpretive Centre and learn about the infamous Harry Redford (Captain Starlight) and how a distinctive white bull was his undoing. Explore the Tramway Museum, where you can see Aunt Emma RN28 rail motor and memorabilia from the early years of settlement.

Get off the beaten track and make your way to Lake Dunn, Gray Rock, Horsetailer’s Gorge and the Healing Circle and along the way watch out over 30 metal sculptures that make up the Lake Dunn Sculpture Trail.
