Gold was discovered in this area in 1873 which later led to the establishment of the Waukaringa township. The town was abandoned in the 1950's. Ruins of only a few buildings remain, principally the former Waukaringa Hotel.

Visitors can locate the nearby goldfields. A stone chimney from the Alma and Victoria mine is still visible. There were 4 mines in the area: Alma & Victoria, Alma Extended, West Waukaringa and Balaclava.
