Resources For History Buffs & School Projects Information For School Students To Use As Worksheets

The community, owners and staff of the Original Gold Rush Colony in Mogo (NSW South Coast Australia) have a wealth of information to share.

The information has been gathered over time from their own research and experiences  initially through the efforts of Bill Mitchell, Corey Peterson, Sam and Martyn Lloyd and Charlie Hyde, building on the base material provided by Ron Prior. As we gave information, so we received anecdotal input from passionate tourists. Many of our guests have had family who lived through this short Caucasian period of Australia's history.

This has led to a collation of stories from the wider communities south of Sydney New South Wales - Batemans Bay, Nelligen, Araluen and surrounding South Coast regions and beyond to provide an on-line resource center. Effort has been made to fit the local stories into the wider perspective and context of the effects of the Australian Gold Rush and the World at Large.

This is a collection of fascinating information and bits & pieces covering a wide range of topics including Australian Gold Rush History, 1800s Living Conditions, Gold Information and Australian Aboriginal Culture.

While all care has been taken, the accuracy of the information is not guaranteed, especially if it has been provided by third parties. We hope the information proves useful for your own research, school projects or general information.
