Settlers Hut, Nundle Region of N. S. W. – SKU 13/70
Nundle was established at the foot of the Great Diving Range in northwest New South Wales when gold was discovered at "The Hanging Rock" and nearby Swamp Creek in 1852. By June 1852 there were 300 gold diggers on the fields at Oakenville Creek. Prospectors from California, Europe and China were also digging along the Peel River and up the mountain slopes. By 1865 the population was around 500 with about 50 businesses in operation. This settlers hut is a reminder of living conditions during the gold rush.
The Three Sisters is the Blue Mountains’ most spectacular landmark, located at Echo Point, Katoomba. The Three Sisters is an unusual rock formation representing three sisters who according to Aboriginal legend were turned to stone. The character of the Three Sisters changes throughout the day and throughout the seasons as the sunlight brings out the magnificent colours. Each of the Three Sisters stand at 922, 918 & 906 metres tall, respectively.
This photo was taken twenty years ago, long before the Twelve Apostles were reduced by constant storm erosion to today’s seven remaining apostles.
Created by constant erosion of the limestone cliffs of the Victorian mainland beginning 10-20 million years ago, the stormy Southern Ocean and blasting winds gradually eroded the softer limestone, forming caves in the cliffs. The caves eventually became arches and when they collapsed rock stacks up to 45 meters high were left isolated from the shore.
