The recent history of the town commenced on the 21st May, 1827 when Allan Cunningham and his party camped at the junction of the Gwydir River and Halls Creek, now featuring the bridge that crosses both to link north with south.
Then came the discovery of Gold within the district and large numbers of people came to the area to make their fortune. Many old mine shafts can still be found within walking distance of the town as well as the remains of the All Nations Gold Mine (opened in 1860) on the southern side of the town. The stamper battery can still be seen.
