    The only real trace of that flume now is some of the concrete ducts and channels, all of those are now full of rubble. It's a shame to lose this place, but it was a real economic disaster.

    It's been gone about 2 years now.

    I'm thinking of paying the site a vist soon, any advice or areas to avoid welcome.

    Happy to meet up with others to explore together.
    May the force be with you.;)

    tbkscott, I remember the panning for gold. still got the "gold" medal somewhere. it was a bit of a con really as no matter how many nuggets you got you just recieved a plastic medal.
    Prior to that I remember that area being used for a photo machine that made it look like you were surfing, think it was just a green screen behind and the sea was projected behind, then you paid for a photo of it.
