Only a short distance out of town. Well worth going to have a look. Well maintained and interesting interpretive signs showing the history of this smalltown in the gold rush days and in more recent times.

Interesting walk, with a couple of options surrounding the old open cut mines. The information centre is good, entry is free and the walks are easy!

Hahahah....It was our first time ever experience to see any type of mine! Open and free for all. Was not easy to see from the top due to bunches of trees but overall a drive though from Dubbo!

Not much here to see other than what was once a working Gold mine. Short hike up a dirt track to reach it.
