ADD TO TRIP PLANNER

Discover the gold mining history of the area on one of the two loop trails. The shorter loop is just over one kilometre long and takes about one hour to complete. The longer loop is about five kilometres and takes three to four hours. Interpretive signs illustrate mining techniques, geology, and treatment of ore and the lifestyles of people who lived there.

Fossicking and collecting of rocks are not permitted.

Re-enactment Day is at Bowden's Cottage on the fourth Sunday in September where visitors can pan for gold, see mining displays, learn about local history, see blacksmithing demonstrations, old working engines and enjoy Billy tea and damper.
