Artist's Description

Gold was first discovered in this area known as the Golden Gully at Tambaroora NSW Australia in 1852..The area was a great source of alluvial gold where hundreds of miners laid out their 20 feet x 20 feet claims for an advanced rental of 30 shillings per month . The gully was not as deep as it is today but years of digging, tunneling and erosion has caused the unusual formations that create this unique landscape today. The area was again heavily worked by the Chinese gold miners. Today it can be enjoyed by the bushwalker or keen fossicker. There are two impressive arches that combined with the gold colours of the soil could be mistaken for an area in Utah in the USA. The recent members of the Redbubble Rumble could not get enough of this intriguing place and a visit to their galleries will reveal the reason for this fascination.

This image shows the quartz that still dots the landscape and finding a lump like this is likely to awaken the fever that once gripped the miners in this area.

Taken with the Nikon D700, 28-300 mm lens, hand held.
