Helen Munro made history in 1861 when she became the first and only woman to discover a major goldfield in Aotearoa New Zealand. Walk in her footsteps as you explore Munro's Gully.

To get to Munro's Gully, drive to Victoria Dam at Milburn Pond, just off Victoria Road. The track in the gully takes you through native bush to a historic water race. Follow the water race into the open. Follow this track up through the pines. Cross the road, turning right down the track past Cornishman's Dam. Follow the track up to Victoria Road and follow the road 2 km back to the Victoria Dam carpark. Vehicles do use the road, so ensure you are clearly visible to drivers.

Track is 2 hour return, moderate difficulty.
