Montreal Goldfield

In September 1880, gold was discovered on a beach north of Bermagui. Named Montreal Goldfield, the rush only lasted from 1880 to1883 but nearly 250kg of gold was unearthed using only a pick and shovel. It became the only goldfield in Australia that extends into the sea.

Montreal Goldfield is great outing for families, experience seekers and interest groups of all ages. The guides are all trained local historians and will reveal the mysteries and anecdotes of times gone by. Peer down the vertical mine shafts, follow boardwalks and compacted paths through the beautiful native forest, re-grown since the days of the gold rush moonscape where time has brought back to life a forest of tree ferns, eucalypts and orchids, inhabited by sugar gliders, lizards and diverse bird life. A browse through the Heritage Centre highlights the intriguing stories told by the guides.

Toilet facilities and drinks are available. Dogs on leads are welcome.

Tours run daily at 2pm – except Mondays and Fridays during winter months and Good Friday and Christmas Day. Please book for groups of 12 or more. Special arrangements welcomed for large groups.

Admission to the site is by guided tour only. Cost is $7.50 adult, $5 child – cash only. The tour is approximately 300 metres in length and takes around 1¼ hours.
