Welcome to Timor


Once a thriving gold town with a population in excess of 27,000, Timor had 38 hotels, three butcher shops, two banks, three bakeries, a police station and several lock-ups. The last hotel closed its doors in the 1960’s.

Timor Police Lock-Up (now located next to the Old General Store) remains as a reminder of the large mining population which worked the mines in the area for nearly 30 years.

The Grand Duke Arch is well worth a visit. Between 1869 and 1896 this mine produced 216,054oz of gold worth £885,821 (about $281 million in today’s value).
