Lost Mines-Ancient Pines
Exlore long forgotten mines in Tasmania's Western Wilderness. Pan Gold and Gems. You find-You keep!
After exploring Lost Mines and Prehistoric forest enjoy some locally produced goods.
From 1881 Pioneering Miners and Piners along Macquarie harbour forged their way into the wilderness seeking gold. Not just gold in the streams and rock but also the golden timber of Huon Pine, King Billy, Sassafras and all the Tasmanian special timbers species growing in the most ancient forests. See the places and hear the stories with a passionate knowledgable local as your guide. Try gold and gemstone panning/fossicking and mine ore in the Jukes Pty underground mine. Be treated to a miners crib break at #1 stope.
