Information

Bamboo Creek has been cleverly renamed by some wag with a sense of humour. It is not until you get closer to the sign, that you can see the Creek's true name. See the attached pictures. The bridge over Bamboo Creek is located approximately 6 kilometres from Woolianna Primary School, (on Wooliana Road), and about 3 kilometres from Wooliana Tourist Park, located right on the edge of the Daly River. This Park, the road, the bridge, and many sites along this road, are often closed due to the flooding of the Daly River in the wet season.

Established around 1906, the Bamboo Creek Tin Mine provides an insight into the small scale mining activities of the era, and its ruins are a reminder of the park’s varied past.
Some sections of the old buildings are still standing, and you can see remnants of equipment relating to ore extraction, processing, transport, an explosives magazine as well as domestic objects. Tin was mined at the site sporadically until it was abandoned in 1955.
You can take a walk around the site and learn about the history and processes.
