Starting at the Coal Mines Carpark on Coal Mine Road, Saltwater River, this walk takes you on a circuit around the Coal Mines Historic Site. Take a short walk around this picturesque site on the Tasman Peninsula, which once housed up to 600 convicts, labouring in the inky blackness of underground tunnels. The peaceful site, overlooking the shallow waters of Ironstone Bay, is now largely in ruins. Stay on track as you explore them and read the informative panels to learn more about the areas history and the stories of the people who lived and worked there. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
