Water and Mining Water Management on the Goldfields

Exploring the works of the 'water merchants', through a series of maps and historical archaeology the 'Water and Mining' exhibition reveals how John Pund a mining millionaire created an extensive water race network that diverted water from the Upper Nine Mile towards the dry 'poor man's diggings' at the Two, Three and Six Mile.

Exploring the works of the 'water merchants', through a series of maps and historical archaeology the 'Water and Mining' exhibition reveals how John Pund a mining millionaire created an extensive water race network that diverted water from the Upper Nine Mile towards the dry 'poor man's diggings' at the Two, Three and Six Mile.

This system of races changed the water flow from the Kiewa water catchment to the Ovens water catchment and created significant environmental problems and changed the landscape forever.

Open every Friday and 4th Saturday of every month until December 2017.
