The Original Gold Rush Colony (previously known as Old Mogo Town) is an authentically recreated, Australian 1850s Gold Rush era village, located behind the regional township of Mogo on the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia.

The old pioneer village theme park is set on 13 acres of native Australian bushland, bounded on 3 sides by the Mogo State Forest and sits sympathetically mindful of nature and the environment.

Gold Rush Theme Park - Step Back In Time On A Guided Tour Or Day Trip

All the buildings, including the administration and on-site accommodation harmonise with the theme of the 1850s Australian gold rush days. The gold rush theme park takes you back in time to an era before iphones and ipads enabling you to discover life as it was for our pioneers on the goldfields.

The change from the 21st century begins as soon as you cross the path to the machinery and printing shed which stores engines from early last century. Cross the time-warp bridge and find yourself in a bygone world of little timber and stone buildings - a replica Goldfields village.

Sounds of the past may break the forest silence, when you hear the slap of the water wheel, the crunching of the quartz and the belting out of Betsy the steam engine.
