Mitchell River National Park

Photos from the Mitchell River National Park in far east victoria, australia (about 30 mins north of the town of Bairnsdale)

Visited the "Den of Nargun" which is a sacred place to the Gunai Kurnai women (the traditional ownders of the land where the park is situated) where the Nargun lived, a being half human, half stone. Children of the tribe were told stories about how the Nargun would eat children to keep them away from the area

Also visited the ruins of the Glenadale Weir, built in the 1860s and destroyed by floods in the 1890s and never repaired

Photos from the park can be seen here http://mattyj.org/thumbnails.php?album=13

Nice photos mattyj. Didn't realize there was so much green in Australia. Is it close to the coast?

I would ask the park rangers for permission to use a gold pan for prospecting.

I wouldn't. ^.^ They'd probably say 'no'.
(And in the rare cause of being caught red-handed, you can always just plead ignorance. As long as you're not building a sluice and making a major operation of it, they'll probably let you off with a 'don't do it again'.)
