Gold Rush Colony – 1850s Re-creation Village Theme Park
Within the grounds of the Gold Rush Colony you will find a faithfully re-created 1850s Gold Rush Village with buildings & exhibits collected from the New South Wales original South Coast goldfields. You can step back in time and experience life as it was in the 1850s Australian Gold Rush days; pan for real gold and enjoy a unique heritage experience.
The Gold Rush Colony and some of the buildings and displays come alive with special events and demonstrations – either on guided tours, on heritage days and as arranged with tour groups, school excursions, weddings and group functions or events. Mini-Golf the mini-train ride, period portrait photography and the maze (due for completion in 2012) all echo the gold rush theme.
