A great place to go to get an insite into the hard work and hardship that went into extracting gold from the grownd. Beautiful tunnles with mosses and ferns growing at their entrances. Resonably easy access for most people.

This was a excellent bushwalk and cave adventure. You definately need torches. There are several old gold mining tunnels. The bush is outstanding and the caves cool fun. The road out to the walk is shingle for part of the way and a little bumpy but fine for a normal car.
You need a map as its not signposted till you get within a few kilometres away. You have to drive through a small mining area too which is a bit weird. The walk was about an hour but you could spend longer in the caves. Isolated but awesome. Shame some of the great walks are so understated.
