The discovery of gold in the colonies triggered a huge influx of emigrants eager for their share – and changed Australia forever.
Find out what it was like to see the cities emptied by gold fever. Feel the ferment of excitement, greed and despair on the goldfields, hear the stories of hope, success and failure and experience the tragic events of Eureka Stockade. And of course, meet characters like miners, bushrangers and a plucky orphan girl called Jessie, and join in lively songs about life on the diggings.
