Nelligen - Cities, Towns and Localities
First surveyed in 1827 by Florence and Hoddle, timber cutters arrived to the area by the early 1830’s. The township of Nelligen was officially gazetted in 1854 and the track across the Clyde Mountain to Braidwood was opened in the same year. 1862 saw the gold rush, when alluvial gold was discovered nearby.

With the gold rush came the bushrangers, with the most notorious for area being the Clarke brothers. Gold shipments from the Araluen, Nerrigundah and Mogo gold fields required armed troopers for escorts. After many years, the brothers were finally tracked down and captured in a bloody gun battle. Whilst awaiting transportation to Sydney they were chained to a large gum tree at Nelligen, the remains of this tree still exist today. The Clarke brothers were hanged at Darlinghurst in 1867, convicted of the murder of four troopers and numerous other offences.

From 1853, large steamers (of up to 10,000 tons) plied the Clyde River to Nelligen to pick up timber, wool and other farm products and to deliver supplies for local farmers, gold miners and timber cutters. A punt service across the Clyde River was begun at Nelligen in 1895 and continued until 1964 when the Nelligen bridge was built. Once the largest town on the Clyde River, Batemans Bay population overtook that of Nelligen in the early 1900s.
