Returning from the Goblin Forest Walk we took in the Anchor Stamper walk, about a 30 minute return along a very well constructed walkway to  what has been preserved of the old Stampers from the Anchor Mine. The car park is just off Anchor Road and only a few kms from the Tasman Highway at Pyengana.  The history of the mine is well documented on a large information board and these are a couple of extracts which summarise the beginnings and the timeline.

The walk itself takes you gradually downhill through the typical Tasmanian vegetation of this area on a formed path with a couple of sections of steps and past the odd reminder of the mining days. The pictures tell the story of the walk.

There are two of the different types of Stampers preserved here, first is the Thompson, brought over from Castlemaine in Victoria:

and the second is the Salisbury, manufactured in Launceston:
