All that glitters

Anytime you drive down pass Woolshed Falls to Eldorado you will see glimpses of the gushing creek as it winds it’s way down, over fords and past gold rush town after gold rush town.

It’s not hard to imagine the hive of activity along the way, back in the days of 1860’s where the worlds wide-eyed travellers wondered trails going between towns selling and buying all the wares that come with life on the gold fields. 

Alongside them Bushrangers, beggars, entertainers and fortune getters all mixed up in the rising dust of the coaches, horses, bullocks and foot traffic from the mighty rich to the mighty poor.

How rich?… David Cameron shod his horse with gold shoes and rode it to Beechworth.
How Poor?… many grave stones tell the sad tale of starvation, disease or worse. These days the timber and canvas gold rush towns are just memories, destroyed by fire or withered down by time. But the GOLD from the largest of Australia's alluvial gold rush towns make no mistake it's still there... you bet ya.

Some of our customers have had great success from panning, sluicing for gold or finding gems. So many we could write a book, we have gold pans here for you to borrow so come and try your luck. A ‘Miners Right’ can be purchased from the Beechworth Information centre or online for $25. https://ablis.business.gov.au/service/vic/miners-right-permit/23924



Fancy a crack down the creek? its a great way to spend a day sitting in the shade on the bank with wondering eyes, hope in heart. But a word of warning, striking a good spot having a good day can lead to the "Gold Fever" then you will be gone everyday digging every way for the glint of the brightest yellow flash in the pan.... Eureka!
