Artist's Description

I used this title because this cave was one of the many along Golden Gully at Hill End NSW Australia which produced large quantities of gold during the gold rush days.
The Hill End-Tambaroora Gold Field was one of the richest gold mining areas in NSW, and the first reef mining area in Australia.
Gold was discovered in 1851 at Golden Gully, when prospectors worked their way north east from Ophir, where the first alluvial gold mining in Australia had commenced a few months previously.
Gold mining licences were introduced in May 1851; they cost 30 shillings per month and were only issued for alluvial gold.
