Copeland Tops State Conservation Area

Copeland, NSW, 2422

Experience Details

Two types of gold have been discovered within the New South Wales area now known as Copeland Tops State Conservation Area. The first was red gold', which was red cedar highly sought after by Australia's European settlers. It was the early explorers who came to log along these mountain ridges who then discovered the shiny type, and gold mining took off too. Although conditions would have been tough back then in this rugged and remote area, you'll discover that it's actually a beautiful place to have worked in. Copeland Tops, home to the most accessible tract of rare dry rainforest in the Gloucester district, is simply gorgeous. Hike along old logging tracks beneath a canopy of towering trees on one of the park's scenic walking trails. There are plenty of great places to picnic. To learn more about the area's mining heritage, join one of the Discovery tours of Mountain Maid gold mine.
