Montreal Goldfield near Bermagui is an amazingly intact example of alluvial diggings in the 1880s and the only goldfield in Australia that goes into the sea. A guided tour through the goldfield is a unique experience for all ages and one not be missed.

Trained guides tell you the story of the Montreal Goldfield and the Great Unsolved Bermagui Mystery as you wander along 300 metres of pathways and boardwalks through the beautiful natural bush covering the diggings today. All shafts are fenced off or covered so you can look down at them in safety. It is peaceful and relaxing, a far cry from the gold rush era's chaotic days and offers full mobility access.

Entry is by guided tour only. Tours leave from the onsite Heritage Centre at 2 pm daily and take just over an hour. Bookings for groups of 10 or more are preferred.
