I explored the historical gold mining precinct of Fiddler's Gully.
I started at the gste at the junction of Webb St and Fiddler's Gully Track, then down the track, scrub bashed in the bushland, then along Dead End Track. My return was along Webb St, a total distance of about 2 km.
No gold, but plenty of exposed quartz rocks and beautiful colored winter fungi!
Fiddler's Gully extends from the ridge line down to the Anderson Creek. At one time there was a creek, known as Fiddler's Creek, but this no longer flows.
