Bendigo gold map
The Bendigo Diggings began in 1851 as part of the famed Mount Alexander diggings, though at an unfortunate time of year when water was scarce and the ground dry and hard.
Despite this early difficulty, many continued to work these diggings steadily and profitably throughout the summer months. Soon enough the rains saw Bendigo leap into madness, with thousands rushing to its rich, newly discovered gullies.
“The Bendigo Creek Diggings continue to be the most productive, yielding a much greater quantity of gold, and with much less labor than any of the other Diggings.” – The Argus, 26th April 1852
