One of many sall goldmining towns that were dotted along this road every few kilometers.. Mostly these towns were gazzetted between 1895- 1900. When the gold ran out these towns died soon after.
Hopes and dreams shattered....
Yep, every 10-20 kms there is another billboard showing where ghost towns used to be...
At least they are mapped these days....
Hard and harsh life reminders.
I would love to have tony Robinson's Time Team come and do an Australian series in these parts..
Pity they are now disbanded.... (-:
Big pity, places like these need an Australian Time Team to go over the place...
Well there you go , we are the Ozzie version "time team" but with photos!
I remember this place well and you have captured the place in this one photo well done. LIKE
Hi Mike, thanks mate.. Id love to dig and poke around these sorts of places longer but no ones going to pay me... :-(
I think getting paid to do your passion sounds great, maybe we could form our own Ozzie team and call it "GOLD FEVER" complete with UBL's and just general lurking to uncover forgotten objects.There even be skulking with intent!
