Geological map of the Maryborough (Victoria) goldfield which shows historical features in superb detail. Originally published by the Department of Crown Lands and Survey, early 20th century.
First known as “Simson’s Diggings”, Maryborough’s gold rush began in the winter of 1854. The area quickly gained its reputation as a rich and profitable field, with reports of magnificent gold nuggets being discovered in abundance!
Thousands of people soon flocked to Maryborough to try their luck, however they were faced with a great challenge – water was extremely scarce, and had to be carted 4 miles to the diggings (at a price, of course).
