This cache has been archived.

Clever Monkey: HQ has requested I remove all the geotour references from the cache page as the cache is no longer a formal GeoTour cache. This would seem fair to do however it ultimately creates a different cache so in fairness to those that came a completed the cache while it was a tour cache I am archiving it in its current form.

Jamieson was first settled 1860 and was heavily influenced by the discovery of local gold. Within a year approximately 300 people (mostly men) were living in the area looking and looking for gold. The Jamieson Post Office officially opened 18 January 1858 and the town was surveyed four years later in 1862. By the late 1800s most mining had ceased due to reduced returns. In 1939 wildfires devastated the area with 71 lives being lost across Victoria. Corduroy Gap was named after a Corduroy Road, this is an old road type made of parallel logs forming a passable road.
