Adelong Falls, Snowy Mountains region, NSW, Australia, and Wilson Ritchie Gold Battery is a historic gold crushing battery and falls. Ruins of the gold rush era. Some of the workings have been partially restored and show remarkable engineering feats of the miners. Gold was discovered in 1852 and the area was mined right up until 1944. 250 tonnes of gold was mined from the area. Walks down and along the river give good access to the falls and to the old mining works.
