Ah Ping Sculpture Walk

The Henry Ah Ping Sculpture Walk in Branxholm celebrates North East Tasmania’s Chinese heritage.

Having remained undisturbed for nearly 100 years, the Ah Ping Alluvial Mine has revegetated with beautiful tree ferns, myrtle and sassafras. Amongst remnant tall eucalypts, a natural grotto still shows evidence of manual mining techniques, including moss-covered rock heaps, and a tail race that still flows with water in the wetter months.

You can read a brief history of Henry Ah Ping and the Chinese miners of Branxholm at the Settler’s Hut, before taking an easy 20 minute circuit walk along the Ormuz/Arba water race and the Jubilee tail race into the mine. Here you can contemplate the feeling of place – “by putting oneself in another’s position, your wisdom reveals”.

From Branxholm bridge, take a short drive beside the Ringarooma River and then up the hill, to the car park next to the Settler’s Hut. A public toilet is available. The site is open each day from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Entry is free.

Accommodation is available adjacent to this walk at the Tin Dragon Trail Cottages.
