Geocache Description:

Couple of ways to access this cache but the best is by turning down the road to Jerangle/Braidwood. Can be virtually driven too or walked. Beware of some broken glass in the area.

Please cover it well after you have finished.

This place is known as the Village of Poplars. During the Kiandra Gold Rush, Bredbo became a safe haven from bushrangers and an overnight stop for the gold coach.

Today Bredbo continues to offer travellers a warm and friendly welcome and genuine country hospitality. The Bredbo Inn is a popular starting point to meet the locals and gain a wealth of regional knowledge and history. Notables such as Anthony Horden, Mark Foy and Banjo Paterson were all regulars to Bredbo and the Inn. During one visit Banjo Paterson reputedly told the publican that local horseman Charlie McKeachnie was the 'Man from Snowy River' but added that 'there was more than one of them, you know'.

Today there are about 200 residents in the village of Bredbo; the community is small but thriving.

The original General Store (now the Bredbo Pancake and Crepe Restuarant) was built in 1903. Which is a good stop if you can catch it open.

Also the pizza place down the road is open again, which make great wood fired pizza (open from Thursday to Sunday I think).
It also has The Christmas Shop which is the biggest we have ever seen.
