Quartz Reef Point Walk

Information

Time: 20 min return

These virtually pristine remains are the result of ground sluicing; channelling water to the head of a claim and flooding the working face. Larger stones and rocks were removed and stacked, row after row in a herring bone pattern. The washed material was then directed or shovelled to a sluice channel to separate the gold from the gravel.

For your own safety and the preservation of this remarkable site, please do not attempt to walk on the stacked stone tailings.
