The gold rush

The Bathurst gold rush was the first gold rush in Australia

Today you can still go panning for gold and hopefully you'll find some

Panning for gold

Back in the olden days when there panning for gold and trying to find gold

Most people go to Bathurst for car races but I would go there for the Bathurst first gold rush

This is a piece of gold that was found in Bathurst.

Now there probably won't be as much gold there like there was before.There would probably be fake gold there.There fake gold would be like medle balls that are spray painted or paint.They probably do that for little kids that go there so they can actually find gold there even though it would be fake but still fun.

The eureka stockade

The rebellion that was mostly refferd to as the eureka stockade is a key event in the development of Australia democracy and Australia identity with some people arguing that Australia democracy was born at eureka stockade (Clive Evatt)

Clive evAtt

Was a Australian politician
