Gin's Leap
Gin's Leap
This is a stunning sheer rock face that rises high above the surrounding countryside about 6km north of Boggabri on the Kamilaroi Highway.

The legend behind its name is that an aboriginal girl of the Kamilaroi Tribe was endeavouring to escape from an unwelcome suitor. In the process, she is said to have climbed the rock and fallen to her death from the top.

For many years a coach stop rested at the foot of the cliff face. Known as D. W. Grover's Rock Inn it served as a horse changing station as well as an inn. The vault containing the remains of members of the Grover family and a grave for servant girl Mary Ann Mein are all that remain as a reminder of the old inn.
