Gold Trails of NSW

Goldtrails-Logo-230x70From the discovery of Australia’s first payable gold at Ophir in 1851 and for several years after this memorable event, the history of New South Wales is dominated by the feverish rush to find gold – the splendid triumphs and bitter disappointments, the ‘mateship’ of the original diggers and the dramatic impact the gold discoveries had on rural societies and economies.

Explore the Highlights of the Gold Trails and discover for yourself how this golden heritage vein underpins the story of the towns, villages and landscapes of NSW.
