The details

To understand and truly appreciate the colonial history of Melbourne, Victoria and Australia a visit here is an absolute must! Experience exciting street theatre, enjoy live goldfields music and get into the spirit by panning for gold yourself. You never know you might strike it lucky!

Laugh, cry and cheer as you hear the amazing story of Mr Smith, your personal guide. He will take you on his personal ’rags to riches’ story back in time, from the squalid, seedy streets of London to becoming one of the goldfields most successful gentlemen. Venture deep underground on a fully guided mine tour, learn about the Creswick Mine disaster and imagine what it must have been like working deep beneath the earths’ surface day in and day out. Complete your unforgettable tour at the famous United States Hotel with a refreshing and well deserved Ale or two.

After a truly unique experience we continue our journey of discovery and travel to Daylesford, deep in the heart of spa country, renowned for its revitalizing springs. Enjoy the quaint village atmosphere and main street bursting with character, browse some of the renowned art galleries and stop in for a coffee. From here it’s a short trip to Trentham Falls, Victoria’s highest single-drop waterfall formed some five million years ago. Relax and unwind as you soak in the atmosphere.

Late afternoon return in to Melbourne.
