Fiddler Gully Gold Hike, Warrandyte State Park

On June 23, 2009, I went out to the Warrandyte State Park, 20 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

I parked at the small picnic area on Gold Memorial Rd, on the banks of Anderson Creek, then did a 3 km circuit hike up Wildcat Gully Track, Wildcat Link Track, Dead End Track (!), and Fiddler Gully Track.

These tracks are in the historical mining region of Fiddler Gully, which dates to the 1850s.
Gold panning in Anderson's Creek is still popular!

Dead End Track is aptly named - it terminates on the top of the precipice overlooking the Anderson Creek Gully!

Sadly, I didn't discover any nuggets - all gone!
