Buchan Dam in Amherst is a peaceful, large dam surrounded by bushland.

The bushland is great for exploring and walking but watch out for uneven ground and unexpected holes, as there are mine shafts in the area.

There's also a huge pile of stone which is great for kids who love to climb.


  • Kids love to climb! There are plenty of places throughout the Goldfields with great trees, rocks, fallen logs and more for kids to climb up, around and over.
  • Gold prospecting is the recreational act of searching for natural gold deposits in the ground using tools such as gold detectors, gold pans and gold sluices. The Goldfields region of Victoria is a popular destination for gold prospectors, with many of the world's largest alluvial gold nuggets found in the area!
