Prospectors’ Dreams: The Story of Kildonan Gold

Saturday 5 August 2023

Join us at 11 am for the latest heritage talk part of People's Mobile Archive focused on the story of Kildonan Gold


In 1869, over five hundred gold prospectors trekked from all corners of the country to the far north to Kildonan looking for gold. The yearlong gold rush was started by Robert Nelson Gilchrist and the prospectors’ settlement was appropriately named ‘Baile an Or’ or ‘Township of Gold’.

Join us for the Story of Kildonan Gold and find out more about the sheep with golden teeth!
