Roxburgh Town and River Track



Gold was discovered in the Teviot River in 1862 and present day Roxburgh grew from there. It has seen boom and bust years and is now settled into the Teviot Valley as a prosperous fruit growing area and visitor destination. It has its own dry, healthy microclimate of warm summers and cool winters; so healthy that there has been a children’s health camp here for many years.

Replete with history, the town has a very pleasant 5 km 1.5 hour loop walk that passes interesting historic buildings and wonderful views of the surroundings. This is an easy walk on town footpaths and river reserve track. After a circuit around the interesting old buildings in the township the track follows the river upstream past the current bridge and remains of the previous two. Originally there was a ferry across the river here and this site is seen as well.

Pick up the excellent brochure available at the Information Centre that fully describes the history of all the interesting buildings and sites passed on this track. Start and end at the Information Centre for this historic and scenic tour of Roxburgh.
