Take a journey back in time on Mount Gray walking track, when hopeful gold miners braved the remote bush conditions in their quest for fortune.

You’ll wander through undulating bushland on this medium grade walk to visit the place of a gold-mining community from the 1880s, listed on the National Estate as a historic heritage site.

The machinery and buildings have long-since gone, but the remaining earthworks are a reminder of the past. It was the miners from Mount Gray who built the dance platform inside the Abercrombie Archway.

After exploring this historic site, the walk leads down the road to the magnificent Grove Creek Falls. Stand at the lookout and watch the waterfalls of Grove Creek tumble over a sheer cliff to the ravine, 70 metres below.
