Crookwell wind turbines can be seen to the North and Dalton township to the West, and the snow top covered Brindabella Ranges behind Canberra can sometimes be seen to the South on a clear winter’s day.At night, the sky is a site of millions of bright stars and a very clear and vivid milky way.

Oolong Sanctuary has also been used in the past to stock angora goats and fine wool merino wethers producing 17.5 micron of fine wool. The surrounding country side is stocked with cattle and sheep.
