A guided tour through the Montreal Goldfield near Bermagui is a unique experience for all ages and should not be missed. Montreal Goldfield is amazingly 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 covering 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 gold rush era's chaotic days 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 12 or more are preferred. Please note that there are no credit card facilities for tour fees, cash only.
