There are a number of short walks that will take you to mining relics and a miner’s cemetery at Gillespie’s Beach.

Gold was discovered at Gillespie’s Beach in 1865, and the mining madness began. If you have more time you can investigate a miner’s tunnel. This gave access to the beach and walk out to the seal colony at Galway Beach.
