Kitchener Poppet Head in Heritage Park

I have wanted to see this structure up close for a long time. I often drive past it. I went to the Heritage Park in Kitchener today and took all these photos. It is an amazing structure. There is a 1.2km walk around the lake at the park which I will do when I have somebody with me as it is in bushland.
Poppet heads sit over mine shafts and are used to winch ore such as coal buckets from below.
I love the rustic look.]

Kitchener is a small town in the City of Cessnock. It is located 5 kilometres south of the town of Cessnock.

  1. Can you tell me if dogs can swim in the water there. I can't get help from anyone not even council. Thank you Vanessa
