Blackguard Gully

This historical site is significant to the early gold rush history of the township of Young. Young Chinese miners were brutally expelled from Blackguard Gully, one of the major Chinese camps on the goldfield, in January and again in June 1861. Evicted into the surrounding country with no equipment or provisions, the Chinese walked the 20 km south to seek refuge on James Roberts’s ‘Currawong’ property near Murrumburrah.



Situated approximately two kilometres from the town centre, the Gully consists of three hectares of old gold mining remains and is the only dedicated prospecting area in the Young Shire. Remnants from the gold rush include parts of old pug mills, water races and diggings.

Try your hand at finding dome gold. Pans and fossicking equipment are available for hire from the from Lambing Flat Folk Museum.
