Lost Mines / Ancient Pines – Queenstown Heritage Tours

 

Board the Lost Mines-Ancient Pines 4WD and head south, out of town to the old gold mining precinct of Lynchford. Be guided through the ancient forests to discover old mining relics amongst the world famous Huon and King Billy Pine trees. Admire the pure tannin hued water in the beautiful creeks flowing through this stunning landscape. Marvel at the ferns, mosses, lichens and fungi throughout the forest. A photographer’s paradise.
Take a spooky walk into the abandoned Mt Jukes Proprietary Mine. A horizontal tunnel mined into the side of Mt Jukes in the 1890’s by pioneer miners. Find your own piece of copper ore on the ground as you walk through the mine. Just some of the highlights of this magical tour.
