Features

The Seaham Mine Bushland Reserve is a fascinating patch of bushland where the Seaham Company mine operated with much success from 1869.

There are many large mullock heaps, several dams, and a track which winds through the whole reserve.

This depiction of the Seaham mine was drawn by Australian artist William Taylor Smith Tibbits (1837-1906).
