The Cumberland Chimney is a large brick structure about twenty kilometres west of Georgetown on the Gulf Development Road. This landmark was our turning point when heading into Flat Creek Station for a tour. This Chimney was apparently built in 1889 to carry smoke from boilers driving stampers used to crush gold bearing rock found in the area. A lake was formed beside the chimney to provide water for the boilers. The only thing that remains is the chimney and a lake full of amazing bird life (especially finches) and water lilies.

We stopped here to take some photos of this beautiful water-bird habitat. Unfortunately we were too late to see any finches so I suggest you head out early morning. There are several spots beside Lake Cumberland that are used for free camp sites - quite private and away from the road. We ran into a couple that we had met at Burke and Wills Roadhouse - it is a small world!
