Blue Lake Loop Track
Time: 30 min loop track
This 2 km loop track encircles the historic, man-made lake. It's a great opportunity to walk past old sluicings and the remnants of the goldmining equipment that was used here - machinery that literally converted Kildare Hill into a lake.
Experience the conditions that the miners had to work in: searing hot summers and freezing cold winters. See St Bathans and Blue Lake.

Know before you go
The Blue Lake Loop Track is closed until further notice due to heavy rain in July 2017 which washed away a 140m section of track along with a small section opposite Cross Street. The Around Blue Lake Loop Track is still open.
