Further information: Gladstone Colliery, which operated only from1885 to 1886, lies deep in the gully under Inspiration Point, accessible only by the Gladstone Pass (LA 039). Although some of the footings associated with the aerial ropeway from Leura are still visible on Leura golf course and form part of its heritage significance, the mine and almost all of the miners’ access track lie within the National Park. The mine should therefore be removed from the register of heritage places for which the Blue Mountains City Council has responsibility.

Recommended management:

A survey should be made of the surviving footings and stone tanks on Leura golf course associated with the working of Gladstone Colliery in 1885-6.
