  • Site of Ben Hall's first gold robbery
Escort rock is about 4kms past Eugowra on the road to Orange. This is the site of the first hold-up robbery by bushranger Ben Hall.
The start of Ben Halls career is debated but the first robbery to which he can be linked was the hold up of the Gold Coach at Escort Rock. A daring escapade lead by the charismatic outlaw Frank Gardiner in 1862.

The rocky hill can be seen from this rest area and is marked by a plaque.
