Kiandra heritage track

Natural Attractions

Kiandra Heritage Track is currently closed due to bushfire alerts.

Take a beautiful and fascinating walk into the history of Kiandra, home to one of the shortest gold rushes in Australian history. Lasting from November 1859 to March 1861, at its peak in April 1860, up to 8,000 people were staking their hopes on the Kiandra diggings. Within a few years, they had given up and the population of this remote mountain town had stabilised at just 350.
The short self-guided walk starts at the former courthouse, in the Kiandra Heritage precinct, and there are plenty of signs along the way to find out more about the history of the area and what life might have been like in this historic town.
