Features

The Simson Historic Area is a patch of bushland which runs alongside the Maryborough-Dunolly Road. It has been heavily explored by gold diggers, as is evidenced by the countless mine holes scattered densely throughout the area.

There is a 4WD road/walking track winding through, access from Simson Road W. Be careful when walking that you don't trip or fall, as the ground is very uneven.
