Dampier State Forest
Five kilometres from the township of Nerrigundah in Dampier State Forests is part of the region's goldmining history. Coman's mine was opened in the 1880s by EJ Coman and his partner Bloomfield. It operated for a brief but unsuccessful period and by 1889 it was found to be unprofitable.
