If you're taking the scenic drive around Creswick's stunning St George's Lake, be sure to pull in at this roadside stop. This area is known as the George's Diggings, where unsuccessful attempts to find gold were made by the George's Mine Company in the 1860's and the George's Reef Mining Company in 1910. 

The sign stands before a grassy area with young pine trees growing up the hill sides. This spot is located just around the corner from the beautiful St George's Lake Lookout, a must-see when visiting Creswick. 

The information sign displays the following text: 

In this area known as the George's Diggings, three attempts were made in the 1860's to find gold by the George's Mine Company, none were successful. In 1910 a new company - the George's Reef Mining Company tried again, always hopeful but also unsuccessful.
