Set in the Gold Mining Era of early Australia in the mid 1800’s, it is a trip back in time.
This chap was searching for that tiny speck of gold.
When you pay to get your entry ticket, you also get a ticket which allows you to pan for gold….
And you could find some, as the water is regularly sprinkled ….. So I hope you end up as lucky as I did…and I have it in a small bottle to prove it.

I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.
