Get the heart rate up with a walk from town up the hill to the Who’d-A-Thought-It Lookout…This is the best place to start exploring the area. According to local legend, the unique name came after an exhausted bullock drover made it to the top of the hill and saw, to his surprise and delight, a tavern in the valley below! The tavern burned down in 1906, but the view from the hill is a stunning 360-degree panorama of Quirindi and the surrounding countryside.
