Located in a valley below Stacks Bluff (1527 m), it is an old tin mining town (Aberfoyle Tin Mine), the mine closed in 1982. Prior to this Rossarden was one of Australia’s major tin producing towns. Nearby locations include Stories Creek, here was a Wolfram mine Fingal and Avoca. The town’s decline was captured in the Weddings Parties Anything song ‘Rossarden’.
