The Original Gold Rush Colony Has Hands On Experience
The Original Gold Rush Colony offers a true Australian History activity in Life On The Goldfields. Two experienced co-ordinators dressed appropriately in the 1850's school "Master" and school "Mam" take the students back in time to imagine what it might have been like to live in the Gold Rush days of Australia.
Explore going to School, making a traditional toy, playing a traditional game and participating in making their own digger's food - "Damper with Cocky's Joy" (golden syrup).
This activity takes approximately 1.5 - 2 hours depending on numbers.
