Australia's most famous living museum, this award-winning heritage village brings to life the 1850s gold rush era. Horse-drawn carriages transport passengers through gold diggings along the creek, where "miners" and excited children pan for "real" gold. There is a replica Chinese miners camp and a dusty main road complete with traditional hotel and shops selling authentic nineteenth century wares. A highlight is the "Blood on the Southern Cross" show depicting the Eureka Stockade rebellion, a short but bloody battle in which 25 miners died fighting for fairer licensing laws.

Loved the history! The battle was realistic. I admire the people who broke away from the English to make their own life in a new land. I'm live in America - although some of my ancestors are English I think the English of old to be horrible! They treated their own people very poorly - freedom is what it's all about.
This was the place in which i enjoyed the most during my stay in Melbourne apart from the beautiful old historical buildings in the city. The little shops along the street were fantastic as i felt like being in an authentic cowboy town. The coffee house experience was really great, the waitresses were dressed very nicely, similarly to those in the old English days. N of coz i love the hourses n cowboys. They were so awesome!!
