Long Gully

Long Gully is a suburb of Bendigo, 3 km north-west of the city's centre. The Long Gully Creek signifies the physical location of the suburb, and the Long Gully reefs ran southwards from Eaglehawk. It was particularly rich, realising yields as high as five ounces of gold to the ton. Long Gully included the area of Ironbark which is now a separate suburb.

Important reef mines were Hustlers (1853), Koch's Pioneer and Hercules, the last-mentioned achieving peak production in 1933.
