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.
Time: 1 hr 30 min
Track category: Tramping track
This tramping track offers spectacular views over Blue Lake and the township.
