Tronoh Dredge – Harrietville
- Natural Attractions
The mighty Tronoh Dredge operated between 1942 and 1954 and was the largest dredge in the Southern hemisphere, weighing in at over 5000 tons. The dredge worked 24 hours a day, 6 days a week mining for gold, leaving behind a large water-filled hole. These days, the dredge is the perfect setting for a relaxing picnic, an easy walk around the waterhole, a refreshing dip or you could even try you luck with hooking a fish or two.
