Arltunga

Arltunga Historical Reserve is an abandoned gold-mining camp accessible only by rough, curvy unpaved roads. Julius masterfully drove us there in a rented RAV 4.

The miners had incredibly difficult lives, but at least they had nice views.

After lots of driving and some concern that we had lost our way, we eventually arrived and toured the remaining buildings of this mining camp.
