Donnybrook Gold

Many hidden gems are scattered throughout the Southwest; tributes to the pioneering efforts of the early settlers that remain unseen by many. Gold was first discovered in Donnybrook in 1897 to much excitement and fanfare of the early colony. The short lived goldrush quickly slipped into memory and Donnybrook became  well known for a different type of green, crunchy gold; the Granny Smith apple.

Visit Donnybrook and discover your own gold; golden memories that will last a lifetime.
