Roxburgh Campervan Hire Holiday
In Roxburgh, gold was discovered in the Teviot River in 1862; these days Roxburgh’s gold comes in the form of sun-ripened fruits including apricots, nectarines and peaches, and a range of other pip and stone fruits which have made it well known as the “fruit growing heart” of the region.
Roxburgh is rich in history from the gold mining era and this is best explored on the Town and River track which takes in the settlement’s most important historic buildings, then heads upriver passing the ruins of bridges and the old ferry punt point.
The town offers a range of essential services including a supermarket, and fresh fruit and vegetables can be picked up from roadside stalls.
