Hi! My family has quite a bit of history around the Turon River, particularly the areas surrounding Sofala. They were the Bottrells.
I came across this site’s map of the Turon River goldfields around Sofala and I’m grateful to be able to locate many of the places my ancestors were born, married and died. Wallaby Rocks, New Zealand Point and Golden Point all feature in my family’s history.
However, one place along the river I’m having trouble locating. It was known as Poorman’s Point (sometimes Poor Mans Point).
Does anybody know where along the river that was? It doesn’t seem to feature on any map I can find.
