In the bush just outside Maryborough, Victoria stands the stone fireplace of an old miners hut. There are several mine shafts up behind the ruins which head off in a line, and gold diggings all around.

The ruins are located just off White Horse Track along an unnamed road. From Majorca Road, take White Horse Track a short way into the bush and then turn left at the first turn-off. The ruins are just up ahead, right alongside this track.


  • 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!
