        Kiandra is an abandoned gold mining town and the birthplace of Australian skiing. In November, 1859, gold was discovered by mountain cattlemen, the Pollock brothers, and by March 1860, some 10,000 miners and storekeepers had raced to the scene it is estimated that the area at its peak accommodated around 15,000 people,

        Significant numbers of Chinese people worked the Kiandra Gold Fields. Chinese miners built Three Mile Dam in 1882 to assist with sluicing operations at "New Chum Hill". The scenic lake still exists and now supplies Selwyn Snowfields with its snow-making water requirements.
