Review of Montreal Goldfield

Montreal Goldfield
Ranked #4 of 12 things to do in Bermagui
Attraction details
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Montreal Goldfield is a unique experience being one of only two goldfields in Australia to have Alluvial gold, being gold from the sea!
The history is told by your guide who is an experienced and knowledgable person and who makes a visit to this historical attraction all the more interesting. Run totally by volunteers, one can get a tour every day at 2pm. Learn about the dangers of mining the gold in the 1860's and wonder at the site of the most beautiful tree ferns and trees that have grown on the site over the years.
The old rebuilt stamper machine for crushing the rocks dug from the tunnels is very impressive!
We tried as hard as we could to find a sample of this precious metal but, sadly, we did not find any!
Well worth a visit and most interesting for all ages.
