“The Sluicings” at Bannockburn is a historic conservation park. Gold miners arrived in this wilderness in 1862 and began blasting away the hills with heavy cast iron water cannons “monitors”. This activity ceased some forty years later and this became a fruit-growing region. Nowadays the land is clothed in the wild thyme the miners brought with them to flavour their food rations. In spring, this dramatic landscape of man-made mesas set amid pinot noir vineyards softens as it takes on hues of pink and lilac.
