Golden Gully walking track is a 0.2km, grade 3 one way hike, located in the Hill End Historic Site, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 30mins to complete.

Hike Summary

A visit to Golden Gully makes for a fantastic experience, where you can see where massive erosion has exposed evidence of the underground warren of mines that once dotted the creek line. Golden Gully walking track is a short and easy stroll, ideal for all ages.
This flat, clearly signposted walk leads to a deep gully where you’ll discover old mine shafts and the remnants of Chinese and European alluvial mining techniques. Close your eyes and you can almost hear the sounds of former goldminers searching for their fortune. In July, you’ll walk alongside magnificent wattle trees in full bloom, after which this area was named.
Be sure to look out for ‘The Arch’, a striking formation created by mining, and later erosion. Keep your eye out, too, for the old cemetery. Return via the ruins of Tambaroora and Valentines mine for a picnic lunch, and relax in the shade at the nearby creek.
