A guided tour through the Montreal Goldfield near Bermagui is a unique experience for all ages and should not be missed. The place is amazing and is an intact example of alluvial diggings in the 1880s and the only goldfield in Australia that goes into the sea.
Trained guides tell you the story of the Montreal Goldfield and the Great Unsolved Bermagui Mystery as you wander along 300 metres of pathways and boardwalks through the beautiful natural bush that covers the diggings today. All shafts are fenced off or covered so you can look down them in safety. It is peaceful and relaxing, a far cry from the chaotic days of the gold rush era and offers full mobility access.
Entry is by guided tour only. Tours leave from the Heritage Centre daily and take just over an hour. Bookings for groups of 10 or more are preferred.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Montreal Goldfield is closed and hopes to re-open Monday 12 October 2020.
