The Golden Mountain
Welcome to the historic site of one of the world’s most productive gold mines in Central Queensland’s charming hinterland.
Commencing operation in 1882, the mine became one of the richest gold mines in Australia, and for a period of time- the world. During its 99 years of mining the area declared a total of 225 tons of gold, 50 tons of silver and 360,000 tons of copper.
The town offers ideal opportunities to delve into the area’s early successes and relive its fascinating past with a range of impressive attractions on show, along with museums and tours operating 7 days.
