The Colony is a re-created 1850’s gold rush era village with buildings and exhibits collected from NSW original South Coast goldfields. You can step back in time and experience life as it was in the Australian Gold Rush days; explore the Gold Mine, mining town buildings and pan for real gold and enjoy a unique heritage experience.

The Gold Rush Colony and some of the buildings and displays come alive with special events and demonstrations either on guided tours or heritage days.

Mini golf, the mini train ride, period portrait photography and the Eureka themed Mogo Maze all echo the gold rush theme.

There are picnic areas alongside the lakes and gardens.
