The old gold diggings at Fiddler's Gully, Warrandyte State Park

On Friday afternoon July 16, 2010, I went over to the Warrandyte State Park, 20 km east of Melbourne central.

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.

  1. Hello,
    I discovered your blog when I was looking for the informations about Victoria Parks. I am really impressed by your blog !
    I will spend 2 weeks in Melbourne in August and I would like to visit the Parks not far away from Melbourne. I'm wondering to visit Sherbrooke Forest, Hamer Arboretum Olinda, Warrandyte State park... Is it easy to get to these parks without a car?
    Maybe you could advice me other parks that are good to visit in the winter?

    Thank you very much,
