Black Flat Goldfields, Warrandyte State Park



These pictures were taken on Friday July 30, 2010, in the Black Flat historical goldmining precinct, Warrandyte State Park, 20 km east of Central Melbourne.

Gold was found at Black Flat in 1878, and the Caledonia Mine operated from 1904 until 1912.

My exploration was about 3 km, following Black Flat Track, which passed the alluvial diggings of the 1880s.

See all of the Photos of my exploration, which include images of some of the old excavations - most of the shafts have been capped with steel grates for safety reasons.
