The Montreal Goldfields is situated about 7kms north of Bermagui on the Wallaga Lake Road. Gold was discovered on the beach in September 1880 and a real gold rush soon occurred with miners mainly traveling from Sydney on the cargo boats. A portion of the goldfield has been preserved as a community project and the tour by trained volunteer guides offers the visitors a unique experience.
Admission to the site is by guided tour only for safety reasons and so the guides can tell the Montreal story. A tour leaves at 2.00pm each day takes about 1 1/4 hrs. For more information and group bookings contact the Bermagui Visitor Information Centre on (02) 64933054 or 1800 645 808
