Bannockburn's sluicing track is a great walk and one that everyone will enjoy. The track loops around the former Bannockburn gold field to provide a vivid slice of history and a most rewarding perspective of times gone by. The area was sluiced and mined from 1862 to the 1930’s, with the remains of dams, water races, tunnels, stone walls, and channels to be seen. Towering cliff faces are all that is left of hills that have been sluiced-away to find the precious gold. The children love running around the old tunnels, while the dog chases rabbits over the hills.
