The first major goldrush town is far more subdued these days.
Most of sights are along either side of a 500m stretch of Beyley St, though the street is so wide you wont want to cross it too many times.
Along the road side and on significant buildings are information board explaining the history of what stands (or once stood) here.
There are a couple hotels and a caravan park on the main street.
A satellite phone would be useful to have in an emergency if you intend to spend an extended amount of time off the beaten track.
