The Lost City lies just a few kilometres from Black Gold Motel, a true hidden gem!
The “Lost City” is made up of striking rock pagodas on either side of the escarpment, it resembles a city skyline and is quite remarkable. Some Pagodas look like old castles, others like apartment blocks and some even look like houses with thatched roofs.
There is also an old coal mine and two old dams in the valley below the Lost City. Fire trails lead to the Lost City but require serious 4WDs – it is easier to walk.
The Snow Gum Fora Reserve is located at the northern end of the Lost City. The dominant eucalypt in the Reserve is a Dwarf Snow Gum.
