Photographer's Note

Raub is a historic gold mining settlement, and the gold mining industry is now undergoing something of a resurgence as the gold price has risen. The old folks' tale recounts that in the early 19th century, an old man and his two sons discovered gold every time they scooped up the earth in Raub. Thus, the town and the district derived their name from the Malay word raub which means "scoop".
