My Blog:
Headed up the gorge to have a look around the dam and tick this walk off. Not much to see, so was a little disappointed, however the information signs gave a good account of what had gone on here.
Short Description:
The track meanders along the creek before passing into eucalypt woodland. At the former Shamrock Gold Mine site, there is a self guided walk with information about the life on the Cania Goldfields.
Getting there:
From Monto, head north on the Burnett Highway and after 11.5km turn right into Cania Road (signposted Cania Gorge). Follow this for 24km and park by the information board on the right, about 11km beyond the Cania Gorge Tourist Retreat.
Route/Trail notes:
From the car park, this easy walk follows the creek, then up a small hill to the mine site and back by the same route.
Other References/Comments:
Basing yourself at Cania Gorge Tourist Retreat for a few days, is a great way to provide easy access to these walks.
