This massive archway at Tambaroora is fast eroding with time and weather and I fear this structure will not be with us for much longer.
Tambaroora is situated near Hill End in NSW Australia. Once a thriving gold mining area, today little survives other than the mulloch heaps, a few ruins, two graveyards and Golden Gully. Gold mining in this area was along the local creeks and was originally based on alluvial gold mining. Once miners had worked over the surface ground of their lease, they would dig down to bedrock through the ancient river gravels in search of new gold bearing leads to follow. The results of their work are evident today where massive erosion has exposed evidence of the underground warrens of mines that once dotted this creek.
