The Original Gold Rush Colony

Established as a family venture in 1991, and originally trading as “Old Mogo Town”, The Original Gold Rush Colony is an accommodation and event venue, where visitors can experience the history of the 1850s Australian gold rush.

This multi award-winning tourism attraction is set on 13 acres of bushland within the Mogo State Forest and offers half day, full day and overnight school excursions to learn about the history of gold in our area.

There are four daily tours open to the public through the reconstructed village and mine tunnel, and the onsite licensed Diggers Rest Tavern is perfect for weddings, functions and birthdays.

Daily guided tour start times: 10.30am, 12pm, 1.30pm, 3pm (approximately 1 hour duration)
