This site was established by Wal Pilz (1927-2016) to share historical information depicted in photos and images of old scenes of the Rylstone District. Wal's belief was that sharing history was the best way to create a living history for Rylstone and the surrounding district. In Wal's memory, the site will continue to operate as an online database and you are invited to contribute images and information. Please comment or email Dan Hatton at email@example.com.
Cudgegong on the main road from Mudgee to Sydney in 1926.
Cudgegong no longer exists as a town following the construction of the Windamere Dam from 1974-1984. It is believed that some buildings were removed or relocated prior to filling of the dam although some buildings and roads remain under the water.
