Fettler’s Crossing is located in Wooroloo, 12 kms from Forge Farm and linked by the beautiful KEP track. The name is derived from the Fettlers who worked the railway line that once ran past the farm. The steel lines have been gone for over 50 years leaving only the track which winds through the hills, and is used by walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
