This is a virtual excursion for Stage 3 students.

Join the rush to learn about striking it lucky in the 1850s. We’ve unearthed fabulous primary sources and inspiring stories from the goldfields to share with you. In this interactive 45-minute virtual excursion students will explore the following key inquiry questions:

- What do we know about the lives of people in Australia’s colonial past and how do we know?

- What were the significant events and who were the significant people that shaped Australian colonies?
