Prospecting in Central Victoria
Home to some of the largest gold nuggets in the world.
Victoria’s Golden Triangle can boast that six out of the top seven largest nuggets in Australia were discovered there. One of the richest goldfields in the world, Bendigo produced 720,000kg of the precious metal between 1851 until 1954 when commercial mining ceased.
We all love the allure of gold, now as then the modern day prospector continues the search. New technology sees metal detectors searching for that elusive nugget, while sluices and pans are still being used as they were one hundred and seventy years ago.
