Mount Jackson Homestead
1894 and a discovery of gold in the area launched Mt Jackson into the sight of miners. Homesteads and hotels were built and a couple of thousand people made this harsh environment home.
That was a long time ago and today there’s not much in the way of community out there except for the industrial mining complex dotted throughout the bush. Remnants of Mt Jackson homestead crumbling during a visit with @jvanviersen to the goldfields.
