Gulgong Gold Experience is located on Red Hill Mining Precinct where gold was first found and is open wednesday to sunday for visitors and locals to explore and is the ideal spot to start you Gulgong holiday experience!
On 2 April 1870, Tom Saunders discovered gold on Red Hill and so began what has often been referred to as, ‘the last of the poor man’s gold rushes’. By June of that year 500 people were on the Gulgong gold fields and by 1872, when the first official census was taken, it was estimated that the population of Gulgong and its satellite villages was approximately 20 000.
Because of the Covid situation at the moment and the number of Sydney folk we have had through the facility during the last couple of days even though they are supposed to return home to be in lockdown. I have had to make the call to close Gulgong Gold Experience until 10th July as our volunteers are in the older age bracket and they are my number one priority.
