Description

 

A gold mining town which is now just a tiny settlement on the Great Northern Highway. It was named after the miner Tom Payne.

 

On July 22nd 1911 the local residents elected to call the town Carnation but this was not accepted by the Government and was named Payne's New Find. Two months later this was changed to just Payne's Find.

Attractions include the old gold battery and tours can be arranged by phoning 08 9963 6513.
