Discover some of our unique gold-mining landscapes within the Maldon Historic Reserve and heritage Maldon township, where there are many fascinating gold-mining sites right on our doorsteps. Maldon is not only Australia’s First Notable Town (classified by the National Trust) but enjoys the pleasure of being surrounded by spectacular natural bush lands that contain abundant cultural and natural heritage.
Explore some of our many gold mine relics and historic goldrush features on three individual, self-guided walking tracks. All three tracks begin and end near the centre of town; an easy walk from the cafes. Otherwise, there is ample parking at the Beehive Chimney or along High St. Refer to the map at the front of the booklet found here.
Do one or do them all, each has unique highlights. Each walking track is a loop and mostly an easy-moderate level, approx. 2.5 km long and take a leisurely 1.5 hours. All you need are good walking shoes and drinking water. Dogs are welcome, on a lead at all times, in the Maldon Historic Reserve.
