The Copper Mines Walk
Free Entry - Entry Information
1300 130 372
The Copper Mines Walk is an easy walk that follows a gravel bush track along the sides of a small stream with a rocky bed in an historic mining settlement. The walk leads to the base of a hill where evidence of mining is very obvious.
Copper was the main mineral mined here, hence the strong discolouration present. The really adventurous might like to follow the faint bridle trail to the right. This trail ends at Anniversary Falls, a retreat used in the early days.
