Description

Reid’s Walk is a shared path that winds its way through the former alluvial gold mining area, with tailings and settling ponds that Eldorado’s historic gold and tin mining dredge left behind.

The walk is 1.1 kilometres one-way (or 1.5km including the creek loop) and takes 45 minutes on a Grade 2 formed track. The return walk is a little over 2km.

Beginning in the centre of Eldorado, access the walking track by taking MacKay Street and then parking alongside the signposted walk start in McCoy Street.

The track leads down to Reedy Creek and follows it upstream to a suspension bridge over the creek.

Following the creek you’ll be immersed in nature with abundant wildlife. Stop by one of the sculptured seats and take it all in – the perfect place to snap a photograph or simply take in the serenity. The swing bridge offers views over the creek and into the forests.

Return to town the way you came or via the road.
