The Pink Cliffs

Heathcote in Victoria is best known for the Cambrian soils that nourish its vines to produce fine reds. Lesser known now is the gold mining operations of the nineteenth century that caused the unusual erosion called The Pink Cliffs. You’ll find The Pink Cliffs just south of the town.
