Own a Piece of Gold Fever History, Near Daylesford
Owned by a local family for over 60 years, this 88 acre property consists of 2 lots on 1 title (Lot 10 is 63 acres approx and Lot 10A is 27 acres approx). Zoned farming, and partially fenced, it is mostly treed, however does have some cleared areas, with picturesque views towards Maldon and Mount Franklin and Porcupine Ridge.
Dry Diggings was once a “Tent City’ in the 1800’s with over 5000 miners living and working in the area trying their luck to hit big on the gold fields. And some did find their luck, with over a tonne of gold extracted from the land. Located on the property and surrounding area were makeshift stores, pubs, equipment suppliers and the odd brothel for the miner’s needs.
Back to the present and there are still old digging ruins scattered around the property. With granite and ironstone rocks found on the property, some of which have quartz veins which may still house gold, you may have the opportunity to strike luck yourself.
With an abundance of native flora and fauna, this property would ideally suit bushwalkers, lovers of nature and those who want a piece of history.
