The prospect of finding gold and lots of it, fed the rush. Miner’s picks, pans, shovels and water cannons got to work on mass and transformed Bannockburn’s landscape forever.
Local landmarks and areas the likes of Slapjack’s Creek, Duffers Saddle, The Nevis, Mt Difficulty are a glimpse of time past and inspiration for the Bannockburn collection. Human endeavor on the one and landscraped devastation on the other. "History is a great teacher".
