27 km of single track loop trail, hand restored by Tom, a fourth generation farmer, and a gang of volunteers, using just hand tools; it took 2 years and 5500 hours to build. Mad but true!
With a dash of history, a splash of sweat and a bucket load of passion – you won’t find another trail quite like it..
Choose from four fantastic accommodation options; a restored woolshed with outdoor baths, rustic huts high in the mountains with magnificent views, sunsets and starlight, or our brand new tiny home (coming soon).
Stay overnight, have an adventure, enjoy breath-taking panoramic views, a rich gold mining history, hand restored trails, guided tours and comfortable accommodation.
