THIS WEEK ON ALL 4 ADVENTURE…
The boys continue their journey and stop for a look at some of the old features on the homestead in this neck of the woods. The weather motivates them to get to the Fraser Ranger station to set up for the night with a stew and a fire.
They contemplate the history of the rabbits in this area. They also come across an old dam built by convicts in 1905 to earn their freedom, despite being in the middle of no where. Simon tests Jase’s building skills.
Then it’s time to head west to check out the old goldfields, but they have some obstacles to overcome to get there. So they stop for the night to set up camp and have a satisfying old-fashioned Bread & Butter Pudding for dessert.
The next day they make their way to the scenic spot of Cave Hill and take a break to take it all in. But Jase gets a whiff of gold in the nearby hills, so it’s time to move on no matter how difficult the going.
They manage to find a hole in the ground, and the gold fever sets in. They explore an old shaft including some relics left behind from many years before. It is worth noting that these old mines can be dangerous, and even the cameramen opted out of this adventure. Take necessarily precautions and obey any signage.
But it’s just a load of mullock for these would-be prospectors, so better luck next time!
