The tailrace was built by the old miners to take the water down to the river with enough pressure to work the sluices to get the gold. Here is a photo of the track to the tailrace.On the second day of camp we walked on the Tailrace track. You had to be careful because there are heaps of roots, water and rocks. The tree roots had grown all the way down the cliff face to reach the water.
We had a great time walking through the tailrace as you can see Emily and I had a cool time because it was really challenging.
We had to walk in the through this water that is in the picture. Above there were some deep parts that went to the top of some gumboots.
