At a horseshoe bend around a small creek, railway tracks emerge from the Long Tunnel Extended Mine (1865-1911). The tunnel leads 300 metres into the hillside before opening on to a cavern-like chamber built to house the mine machinery that could not be accommodated on the surface. Long Tunnel Extended Mine became the fifth richest in Victoria, yielding almost 14 tonnes of gold worth $200 million. Its eight kilometres of underground workings descended 923 metres.
