  • Dam
  • Bushland
  • Gold diggings
The New German Dam sits in the bushland outside the historic village of Majorca, Victoria. 

The dam is accessed via dirt roads which are suitable for all vehicle types in dry conditions. 

It is surrounded by old gold diggings, so be careful of uneven/unstable ground and mine shafts if wandering through the area. 

Gold prospecting is allowed here. 


  • Bushwalking is an excellent way to get outdoors and exploring nature.
  • 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!
