Not far from camp are these really cool mine tunnels, it’s a short walk to view them from a few different angles.
The Balaclava Mine was an open-cut mine in the town of Whroo, Victoria. It opened in October 1854, one year after gold was found at the nearby Rushworth. By 1881 the number of employed miners in the area had dropped to 150, and mining in the Balaclava Mine ceased in the 1920s. The site now operates as a tourist attraction.
