quartz mountain

I wonder if our land is actually adjoining part of this mountain...
"Quartz Mountain at Amherst, 20km from Maryborough, and just a short distance from Talbot, is the largest expanse of quartz rock known to exist in the Southern hemisphere. The site of a massive goldrush in the 1850's, the rocky outcrop remains the visitor of the harsh reality of the diggings fields".

It's pretty likely considering "The "Big Reef" is a massive quartz outcrop in State Forest and private property between Amherst and Lillicur, to the west" (from Goldnet magazine article posted in March)

Next time we're back we'll have to try and find it

Quartz Mountains are very long to tour from my house to still drive the high speed seven seat car for the 6 hours. When my driver will take to Quartz Mountain I will be ready to write my essay australia so that is very far and need to stay back.
