Corner of Cambrian Track and Mosquito Road, Maryborough VIC 3465

Features

The Cambrian Mine was a large operation working the Cambrian Reef in Maryborough, Victoria. The site is located in the bushland of the Craigie State Forest. 

Huge mullock heaps and the remains of shafts are spread across a large area between Cambrian Track, Mosquito Track and Argyle Road.

This area is sometimes used for four wheel drives and motorbikes - multiple dirt tracks travel around the site. If driving four wheel drives or motorbikes through the area, be aware of mine shafts and unstable ground. There are multiple holes atop the ridge alongside Cambrian Track, and the remains of large shafts scattered throughout the whole area.

Gold prospecting is allowed within the Craigie State Forest.



DID YOU KNOW...

  • Bushwalking is an excellent way to get outdoors and exploring nature.
  • Evidence of the mid-late 1800's gold rush can be found throughout the Victorian goldfields in the form of abandoned mine shafts and tunnels, mullock heaps, buildings and ruins, circular puddling troughs, remains of cyanide vats, and quartz kilns.
  • 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!
