The Old Goldmines of Warrandyte

On November 1, 2008, I visited the Warrandyte State Park, 20 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

From a starting point at the car park on the Whipstick Gully Rd, I completed the 2 km Bruce Bence Track circuit, which passes through the historical goldmine region.

There are many old shafts and the remains of diggings along the Track.

Near the car park, there are interpretative signs and an audio presentation describing early mining activity in the region.

The Yarra River is nearby, with ducks and dogs!
