Coppermine Creek

Listing Details

Copper was first discovered in the Maharahara area, approximately seven miles north east of Woodville, in 1887, and from that date, considerable time and money had been spent in attempts to find the main lode.
From the Coppermine Road end close to Woodville there are opportunities for picnicking. There is access to an easy, sheltered low level forest walk as well as more challenging walks to higher levels: The Coppermine Creek Track is a pleasant walk through lowland forest to an area where copper was mined(2 hr return), Coppermine Loop Track (2-3 hr) and  Whariti Peak Track (3 – 4 hr)
