Warrandyte’s history goes back in time to the first discovery of gold in the region in 1851. However, during this period minimal mining was done. It was not until the famous gold rush era that extensive gold mining was carried out which this led to the area’s popularity.
Warrandyte is located on the banks of the Yarra River and, considering the gold deposits in the area, it is easy to understand why there are dozens of mineshafts and tunnels scattered across the suburb. These make for an exciting way to explore some of the region’s historic landmarks.
