Cemetry
The cemetery, 2km north on the Boona Road, at the corner of Maitland Street has memorials to early pioneers and a recently restored Chinese section which is of some interest. A booklet called "A History of the Chinese in Condobolin" is available from the newsagency.

Aboriginal Site

  40km West, adjacent to the Lachlan Valley Way, is an Aboriginal burial site of some historic importance known as the "King Grave". It is believed that one of the Lachlan tribal chiefs was interned here. The site predates 1817 when John Oxley encountered it. The burial mount was surrounded by some carved trees, functionally equivalent to totem poles. Today there is a rock monument. The trees have, unfortunately, been removed to other locations and have now been replaced by rough replicas. The site is signposted to the right if you are heading west from Condobolin.

 

Fishing
The Lachlan River around Condobolin is a popular fishing spot with large cod, perch and catfish to be had. There is a weir near the eastern entrance to town at the southern end of May Street. There is some fine fishing downstream of the weir.
