Sofala (NSW) Australia Nestling in the lovely hills of the Turon River valley is Sofala, the oldest gold town in Australia. Settled only three weeks after the first official gold strike at Ophir, Sofala swelled to a peak population 40 000. Today it has contracted to a totally captivating, rustic village of around 100 people. The surrounding district is primarily superfine wool farms. Each farm has many relics and remnants of the goldrush.
