  • We stopped at Mitchells Gully Gold mine, the rain was still managing to hold off. This Gold Mine showed a number of tunnels dug through the gold bearing sand. There was a water wheel which was used to crush the ore so that it could be treated with Mercury to extract the gold as an amalgam. You walk along several tunnels in the pitch dark, so mobile phone is useful to light your way. As well as the tunnels there are passages through the trees for the railway line to meander and for you to walk along. On one of the tracks a very obliging fantail stopped to have one, or more, photographs taken. It obliged by fanning its tail and generally looking very cute.
  • Visited on a rainy day. It was amazing. The small track, the mines and the rain forrest all blew us away. One of the best small side trips to do on your way. 👍👌😆
