15th December 1851: The Forest Creek Monster Meeting of Australian gold miners protests taxes
 
02:40
Gold had been discovered by shepherds near the modern town of Castlemaine in July 1851. However, it wasn’t until a letter from John Worley, one of the men who had found the precious metal, was published in a Melbourne newspaper at the start of September that ‘Yellow Fever’ on an unprecedented scale seized the people of Victoria. By December an estimated 25,000 people had arrived in the area to work the river beds and the creeks in the hope of finding gold. The scale of the gold rush had a dramatic effect on society as people left their homes and jobs and headed to Forest Creek in the hope of making their fortune. To slow the rush, Victoria Governor Charles La Trobe had introduced a thirty shillings Gold License that was payable each month by every digger, irrespective of whether gold was found. However, with the area’s infrastructure at breaking point due to the continued influx of gold-seekers and their tents, in December he announced his intention to double the fee to sixty shillings from the start of the following month. Angered by this tax rise, more than 14,000 diggers came together at a rally to oppose what they perceived as an unjust financial burden. Gathering under a new flag, the diggers heard speeches from the demonstration’s organisers who addressed the crowd from an improvised stage on the back of a wagon. On 24 December the Government Gazette confirmed that Governor La Trobe had reversed the tax increase. The Gold License remained at thirty shillings a month.

Travel the backroads and byways of the goldfields landscapes on roads that were once home to both goldseekers and bushrangers looking to turn a profit. Today the remnants of the historic goldfields sit alongside the towns and villages of central and south-west NSW. In an extraordinary period from 1851 onwards, people rushed to make their fortunes on a series of goldfields that were discovered in NSW. The new finds significantly impacted the early agricultural towns and villages. New settlements were established to service thousands of prospectors and miners who came and went. Many came from Australia and overseas to win the gold, many set up businesses to feed and supply the miners, while some chose to steal. Today, this golden heritage vein underpins the story of nearly every major town and village across central and south west NSW. Every goldfield has its own trail to follow -- every goldmining family their own story to tell. Follow the GOLD TRAILS and discover for yourself, the heritage riches underpinning the towns, villages and landscapes of NSW. Here the stories of those who won the gold and those who stole the gold, are brought to life by communities committed to conserving and sharing their heritage.

When gold was discovered in Ballarat in 1851, it seemed that overnight the workers of Australia had gone AWOL – farms, building sites, ships, police barracks, government offices, shearing sheds – all were deserted. Australian and human history is entwined with the desire for gold, but perhaps we should focus on a different kind of treasure. Did you know that your heart will always be where your treasure is?

SOFALA NSW WHERE GOLD WAS FOUND DONE BY DRONE
 
01:46
Sofala is a village in New South Wales, Australia, 255 kilometres (158 mi) north-west of Sydney, within Bathurst Regional Council. It is located beside the Turon River. Sofala is just off the Bathurst-Ilford Road, with only local traffic through the town itself. At the 2006 census, Sofala had a population of 208. Turon River Near Sofala Sofala came about as a direct result of the gold rush which had been spurred on when Edward Hargraves discovered gold at Summerhill Creek on 12 February 1851. By June of that year, thousands of people had set up mining operations in the valley, and both the Royal Hotel and a general store were built in 1851 to handle the increased demand. Initially, gold was found in the area known as Gold Point on the Turon River. When the alluvial gold ran out, mining turned to quartz reef mining. The town was a centre of opposition to the gold licensing system in New South Wales at the time. A considerable proportion of the miners were Chinese. Sofala Public School was established in 1878. There was an Anglican church and a Catholic convent. The Convent opened in 1872 and closed in 1909, although it was a church until 1970. The Gas Hotel was one of the first two hotels licensed, in 1851. The Royal Hotel was established in 1862.There were also two other hotels in 1866, Sofala Inn and Barley Mow. The Barley Mow having a Cobb and Co booking office. Now a private residence, the Post Office and telegraph office, built in 1879 operated until 1989. Attractions today include the gold-rush-era Sofala Royal Hotel and the old gaol. Small-scale gold workings are still active in the town. Sofala has been reported to be the oldest surviving gold-rush town in Australia. There are still gold prospectors who pass the time using metal detectors, gold pans, and sluice boxes to recover small quantities of gold dust.

Lets look back to an early time of a gold rush that shaped NSW - Hillend & Tambaroora
 
24:24
An early look back on the historic gold mining towns of Hill End and Tambaroora courtesy of History Hill living museum http://historyhill.com.au/ Hill End - In the 1850s the Hill End area was known as Bald Hills. In 1860 a village was proclaimed, first as Forbes, then in 1862, it was altered to Hill End. In the early 1870s, Hill End took over Tambaroora as the main town in the area. Bernhardt Holtermann with the 630lb rock containing more than 75 percent gold from Hill End, unearthed in 1872 Hill End owes its existence to the New South Wales gold rush of the 1850s, and at its peak in the early 1870s it had a population estimated at 8,000 served by two newspapers, five banks, eight churches, and twenty-eight pubs. The town's decline when the gold gave out was dramatic: by 1945 the population was 700. At the 2006 census, Hill End had a population of 166, which now has dropped to 80 people during the year 2017. In October 1862 the Telegraph line reached Hill End (Tambaroora) from Bathurst via Sofala, the Telegraph Office opened for telegraph messages bringing the remote town into instant contact with the rest of the Colony. Prior to this event, communications took 12 hours by the mail stagecoach to Bathurst. After delays due to lack of materials a telephone line was installed into Hill End in 1914; after 60 years of Morse code telegraph messages, Hill End could now speak to adjacent towns and even Sydney if necessary. In 1923 a telephone exchange was installed at the Hill End Post Office; before this calls could only be made by the Post Office to other towns. The exchange allowed new telephones installed in businesses and private homes to connect locally and to other towns. Tambaroora - Up until the later part of 1852 the area near the junction of Golden Gully and Tambaroora Creek in the vicinity of the future Commissioners Camp later known as Camp Hill was referred to by correspondence and early miners as "The Stock Yards", another name associated with the future Town was Samuels Flat or Samuels Field, this was located immediately to the west of the Commissioners Camp between Golden Gully and Moonlight Gully/Creek and attracted rushes of miners with reports of gold being found there on more than one occasion. The 1852 Pastoral Map is annotated with "Samuels Flat" in the same area that a Stockyard was located, this Stockyard would have been Oakes Stockyard as it is mentioned by name in relation to rushes to the area. The roads in the district which were already established for pastoral usage merged in the vicinity of the future town, the road later known as the Escort Track entered the town at Clarke Street, the road to Cummings and Bundy Stations was at Mcmahon Street. There was also the road to Dirt Holes Creek and its continuance to Louisa Creek (present day Hargraves) and Richardsons Point (present day Windeyer) on its way north to Mudgee. A deciding factor in the siting of the Commissioners Camp would be its central location to the surrounding local goldfields of the Lower Turon, Bald Hills Creek, Golden Gully, The Stock Yards, Tambaroura Creek, Dirt Holes Creek and Green Valley This merging of tracks would have seen a concentration of those whose interest was in commercialization and not prospecting, hotels and stores soon occupied prime positions along the road between Golden Gully and Dirt Hole Creek with a scattering of Hotels and Stores in each of the local goldfields. Throughout 1852 an inrush of miners and associated industries saw the name Tambaroora Proper appear as a reference to this area, the "Proper" initially being added to distinguish it from the area of the same name. The town was a major hub for the gold mining and supporting industries in the district, its significance declined in the late 1860s when alluvial mining waned and later at the beginning of the 1870s when the focus moved from alluvial mining to reef mining on Hawkins Hill and around the young pup Hill End. Many revivals followed, the economic depression of the 1890s had a severe impact on the country and the world, many feeling the hardship made their way back to the fields to try their luck. In the 1890's an attempt was made by the government to revive the town, adjustments to the town boundary in the north east corner of the town saw new Lots surveyed and placed on the market, thou with little success, previously unsold Lots from the 1860s and 70s were once again advertised for sale on numerous occasions, and a new General Cemetery was surveyed and dedicated.

The Story of Bendigo Central Deborah Gold Mine
 
02:10
When gold was first discovered in Bendigo in 1851 it sparked decades of gold mining worth billions of dollars. Central Deborah Gold Mine was one of the last two commercial mines to cease operation in the wealthy Bendigo goldfields, operating for just 15 years between 1939 and 1954. Although a relatively short time frame, during this period the mine produced 29,865 ounces (929kg) of gold. Today, Central Deborah Gold Mine shares its rich history with visitors.

SOFALA 1851 GOLD RUSH TOWN NEW SOUTH WALES AUSTRALIA
 
02:26
When the mighty clipper ships sailed to Australia from California or Britain in the 1850s, chances are the passengers on board were heading for Sofala, 40 km from Bathurst in New South Wales, where the discovery of alluvial gold promised quick fortunes for some but not all. Sofala has only a comparative handful of residents these days but in its heyday it was a thriving community with gold at the centre of everything.

It is the largest surviving Australian nugget of the 19th century - the Maitland Bar (or Jubilee) Nugget (10.7 kg - 23.54lbs - 376 oz), found in 1887 near Mudgee, New South wales, east of Sydney. I don't think the Rotapan from www.rotapan.com could handle this baby. This nugget is kept in the NSW Govenment safe in Sydney, Australia.

Central Deborah Gold Mine Bendigo Victoria
 
14:44
Central Deborah Gold Mine Workers standing on the surface of the mine during the Gold Rush Era Central Deborah’s History Central Deborah Gold Mine operated from 1939-1954 and extracted 929kg of gold, which would be worth about $50 million today. At its peak, Central Deborah Gold Mine reached a depth of 412 metres. It has 17 separate levels and 15 kilometres of drives and cross cuts (tunnels). The Central Deborah was very much a hands-on mine and the conditions that the miners worked in would be considered shocking by today's standards – being lowered underground in a cage with only two sides, often working ankle to knee deep in water, filling up to 32 ore trucks a shift by hand which were then pushed a mile or more along rails in the drives, working by carbide lamp, breathing in the fumes and rock dust and communication by bells. Geez, they were ironmen. However, at the time working conditions were considered to be among the best on the goldfields at Central Deborah, after all it was one of the only mines that had hot showers. Following Central Deborah Gold Mine's closure, the Bendigo skyline began to noticeably change. Obvious remnants of mining such as poppet heads, engine rooms, service quarters, battery houses and chimneys were steadily disappearing. After intense lobbying by the local community, the Bendigo City Council purchased the still very much intact Central Deborah Gold Mine in 1970 for a mere $6,000 to ensure that a vital link to Bendigo's historic golden past was maintained. The Bendigo Trust was then formed to oversee the operations of the Central Deborah Gold Mine, which led to the surface of the mine being opened to the public in 1971. Initially the surface was open for just 12 hours a week and as the demand for viewing a part of Bendigo's history increased, so did the opening hours. In 1974 the mine was gazetted as a Public Historical Purposes Reserve and attracted such visitors as H.R.H Prince Charles. By far the greatest shortcoming at this stage was that no one could view the underground workings, as these had become flooded. After what could only be described as a monumental effort by everyone involved, Level 2 of the mine was officially opened to the public by the Premier of Victoria, the Honourable John Cain, on 20 June 1986, which brought to fruition a long standing dream. The Underground Adventure Tour on Level 3 was later launched in 1998 and in 2011 Central Deborah Gold Mine became the home of Australia's deepest underground mine tour with the launch of Nine Levels of Darkness, allowing visitors access to Level 9 of the mine, 228 metres underground. The key to Central Deborah Gold Mine's success as a tourist destination has always been the passion of our staff and tour guides, which include some of the grandchildren and relatives of the original Central Deborah miners. They literally bring Bendigo and Central Deborah's golden heritage to life as they passionately regale our visitors with stories of what life was really like during the harsh gold rush era of 1851-1054

You can support us by purchasing something through our Amazon-Url, thanks :) During the Australian gold rushes, significant numbers of workers , relocated to areas in which gold had been discovered.A number of gold finds occurred in Australia prior to 1851, but only the gold found from 1851 onwards created gold rushes.This is mainly because, prior to 1851, the colonial government of New South Wales had suppressed news of gold finds which it believed would reduce the workforce and destabilise the economy.After the California gold rush began in 1848, causing many people to leave Australia for California to look for gold there, the New South Wales government rethought its position, and sought approval from the Colonial Office in England to allow the exploitation of the mineral resources and also offered rewards for the finding of payable gold. ---Image-Copyright-and-Permission--- About the author(s): Edward Roper License: Public domain ---Image-Copyright-and-Permission--- This channel is dedicated to make Wikipedia, one of the biggest knowledge databases in the world available to people with limited vision.

A Gold Hunter's Experience by Chalkley J. Hambleton (FULL audiobook)
 
02:01:27
A Gold Hunter's Experience by Chalkley J. Hambleton "Early in the summer of 1860, I had an attack of gold fever. In Chicago, the conditions for such a malady were all favorable. Since the panic of 1857 there had been three years of general depression, money was scarce, there was little activity in business, the outlook was discouraging, and I, like hundreds of others, felt blue." Thus Chalkley J. Hambleton begins his pithy and engrossing tale of participation in the Pike's Peak gold rush. Four men in partnership hauled 24 tons of mining equipment by ox cart across the Great Plains from St. Joseph, Missouri, to Denver, Colorado. Hambleton vividly recounts their encounters with buffalo herds, Indians, and"the returning army of disappointed gold seekers." Setting up camp near Mountain City, Colorado, Hambleton watched one man wash "several nice nuggets of shining gold" from the dirt and gravel, only to learn afterwards that "these same nuggets had been washed out several times before, whenever a 'tenderfoot' would come along, who it was thought might want to buy a rich claim." Two years later, "tired and disgusted with the whole business," Hambleton returned to Chicago, where he arrived "a wiser if not richer man." In later years, Hambleton was a prominent Chicago lawyer, real estate developer, and a member of the Chicago Board of Education. He wrote this candid account for family and friends, publishing it privately in 1898. It is based in good part on letters he had sent from the gold fields to his sister. Summing up his experience with wry humor, he writes: "After selling out my interest in the joint enterprise, I still had left some fifty claims on various lodes . . . Some time after returning to Chicago, I was making a real estate trade . . . and I threw in these fifty gold mines. . . Had I only kept them, and gotten up some artistic deeds of conveyance, in gilded letters, what magnificent wedding presents they would have made. . . In the long list of high-sounding, useless presents, the present of a gold mine would have led all the rest." (Summary by Sue Anderson)
Balarat & Sovereign Hill in Winter
 
12:38
Sovereign Hill is an open-air museum in Golden Point, a suburb of Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. Sovereign Hill depicts Ballarat's first ten years after the discovery of gold there in 1851. It was officially opened on 29 November 1970 and has become a nationally acclaimed tourist attraction.[1] It is one of Victoria's most popular attractions and Ballarat's most famous.[2] Set in the Australian 1850s, the complex is located on a 25-hectare site that is linked to the richest alluvial gold rush in the world. The site comprises over 60 historically recreated buildings, with costumed staff and volunteers, who are able to answer questions and will pose for photos. The recreation is completed with antiques, artwork, books and papers, machinery, livestock and animals, carriages, and devices all appropriate to the era. Song: "Spin" by Caitlin Mahoney

Monster Meeting - The Ells - Something Good (1851 Monster Meeting, Forest Creek).wmv
 
05:17
Central Victorian band The Ells perform "Something Good", about the Forest Creek Monster Meeting held on 15th Dec 1851 to protest the doubling of the Mining Licence fee. The song is written from the point of view of a member of the british Chartist movement who emigrates to Australia with his family and ends up on the Victorian goldfields. It is likely that Chartists were prominent in disseminating concepts of workers' rights and social justice on the goldfields and elsewhere. Their philosophy evolved over time and eventually informed the early trade union movement. The Chewton (Forest Creek) Monster Meeting was an important event in the development of australian democracy. It is seen as a precursor to the 1854 Eureka Stockade and was arguably the first rally for workers' rights. .

TUNNEL, WARRANDYTE
 
01:01
Presenting the Pound Bend Tunnel at Warrandyte in Melbourne, Australia. ADDITIONAL INFO: Victoria became a separate colony from New South Wales in 1851. Around that same time, gold was discovered at Warrandyte, then known as Anderson's Creek; with additional finds elsewhere, the Victorian gold rush was born. The Yarra River was just one source of gold, and in 1870, the Evelyn Tunnel Gold Mining Company blasted a 196 metre long tunnel, in order to divert water from the 3.85 km section known as Pound Bend. The extraction of gold from the exposed river bed proved too difficult however, and the company collapsed after only a short existence. The dams that once prevented the water from flowing around the bend no longer exist, but the tunnel does, and its entrance can be viewed from Norman's Reserve, while its exit can be seen from Pound Bend Reserve.
