natural arch at Golden Gully near Hill End

Natural arch near Hill End NSW IMG 0085 - The historic village of Hill End, north of the NSW city of Bathurst, was the site of a major gold rush in the 19th century. Today the national trust listed village is a popular tourist destination, and modern day visitors who are eager to search for treasure head to Golden Gully, which is only a short distance from the heart of the village, and where much of the vast amount of gold that was extracted from the region was found. This image shows part of a natural archway that crosses the frequently dry creek bed and that was formed by the forces of wind and water aided by the frenetic excavations of miners.
