Information

Bouldercombe Gorge is situated behind the small town of Bouldercombe near Rockhamptonin Central Queensland. The gorge cuts into the Razorback Range and Crocodile Creek runs along the gorge floor.
Originally called Crocodile Creek the area saw a small gold rush during the late 19th century. Today, gold is still mined in Bouldercombe, but only by fossickers. The mine still has a wide variety of gold alloys, and is a particularly good spot for alluvial.

Bouldercombe Gorge Recreation Reserve is also a popular swimming hole; however, a number of people have lost their lives over the years when they have been washed down the gorge because of flash flooding.
