Bannockburn Wineries
The historic goldmining town of Bannockburn is still thriving today,
with an approximate population of 126.
.
Perhaps most well known for its exclusive vineyards that now dominate the landscape once sluiced by the early gold miners. 
Bannockburn produces a different form of gold these days, liquid gold! 
While you’re in the area don’t forget to indulge in the many
vineyard wine tastings and wine tours available in the area.

The main centre of Bannockburn has lost none of its original goldmining town charm with many of the original buildings still intact including the Bannockburn Hotel, the post office Stewart’s store and various miners cottages

Goldmining history can be found all around the area with the Bannockburn sluicings well worth the short walk. 

The trek up to Stewart Town, a goldmining ghost town is certainly
recommended as the ruins of many of the mining cottages and old orchard still remain, giving a unique insight into the history of the area. 
The view is spectacular too.
