Lucknow mine workings remains...
Fortunately, Lucknow, a small village on the Mitchell Highway just a few kilometers from Orange had a 'gold strike' shortly after the Ophir find and it continued on for over 100 years.

When you visit you will still see remains of the Wentworth Gold Mine workings
(1890s - 1940s)  - extensive above ground buildings from the mining era still exist. 
Lucknow is much as it was in the beginning - a great journey back in time.  In the village there are still many examples of the miner's cottages.
You can take a 'Walking Tour of Lucknow' and stroll around the historic village.  With its rich heritage as a gold mining settlement dating back to the 1850s you can discover some of Australia's early history.
On your walk you will see mounds of sand in the distance - these are left over from the gold extraction process.
The walk takes about 1 hour to complete.
