Friends of Cornish Hill
Cornish Hill is a Crown Land reserve in the heart of Daylesford. This land was intensively mined for gold between 1852 and the 1950’s. It was so named after the Cornish miners whose expertise in deep mining techniques was crucial to the extracting of gold from the quartz reefs running deep under the hill.
The mining left the hill derelict and denuded of trees and it soon became an area where goats and cows grazed. Woody weeds such as gorse, blackberry and broom became established in the disturbed soil, making reclamation and regeneration a challenging and lengthy process.
Spring-fed Smith’s Creek rises near East Street and bisects the reserve and flows into Wombat Creek which eventually becomes part of the Loddon River system. Cornish Hill is a haven for wildlife as well as a community asset to be discovered and enjoyed by all.
