Corner of Pyrenees Highway and Moonlight Road, Moonlight Flat VIC


The Moonlight Bushland Reserve is an interesting little patch of bushland alongside the Pyrenees Highway, just outside Maryborough.

The entire reserve is filled with the shallow remains of mine shafts and is a fascinating place to wander through. A dirt road travels through among the trees and makes a great walking track.

Watch your step when walking through the Moonlight Bushland Reserve (it's easy to trip when walking on uneven ground) and be aware of the dangers of mine shafts


  • 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!
