19Oct18. A good walk through the bush. A few interesting info boards and relics.
Cemetery was interesting. Some of the inscriptions show just how hard life was back then. Quite a few were from Ireland, a couple of them from close to my home in UK.
There could maybe be a bit more info on the way round the walk but it was good nonetheless.

Brilliant. Old tunnels and at the end you will end up on the river where they found the first piece of gold. If you look in the sand you will see some tiny shiny gold flakes:)

A great family walk. Even though the path is quite steep at times for younger children there are plenty of sights to keep them interested such as the miners hut, the cemetery and the small tunnels.
