Two excellent walks on the Tin Dragon Cottages property and another one adjacent make this a great place to begin to understand the fascinating tin-mining history of the area. Graham and Christine have value-added the walks with excellent interpretation, art installations that are so good that it is best to leave them as a surprise for you, and a wonderful spot on one of the walks set aside for meditation. You will be enriched by doing these walks!
Displays in the Settler's Hut tell you lots about the history and maps on the outside walls show you the route for the two walks from there.
The third walk starts from Ruby Flat Rd about 1km past the Recycling Centre, and actually joins up with the longer of the two walks from Tin Dragon Cottages. The Tin Dragon Centre at Derby is worth a visit to get an overview of The Tin Dragon Trail.
