Old gold diggings

Nowendoc River Lower Nowendoc river upstream from the junction of the Rowley River, it narrows down around the bend and is not navigable unless canoes or kayaks are carried quite a distance.

After fires went through properties around 2013 old gold diggings were revealed where some hillsides were terraced and creeks dug out with all large boulders removed and the beds were mined for alluvial gold. A number of properties down the Nowendoc were first pegged starting from Nowendoc working down the river in the late 1800's for gold mining. I am not aware of any significant findings. Have found none myself or any gemstones from the Barrington Tops sources.
