Life on the Australian Goldfields

The discovery of gold in NSW and Victoria in the 1850s marked the beginning of the gold rush era in Australia and attracted thousands of people from around the country and around the world. This era would prove to be a time of great social, economic and political change for those who lived on and around the goldfields. These goldfields are often referred to as the “diggings”.
