On a WorldStrides tour of Ballarat in Victoria or Bathurst in New South Wales, students have the opportunity to journey back in time and experience a three-dimensional slice of Australia’s colonial history – the Gold Rush Era!

Ballarat

Enhance students’ history studies as they begin to appreciate the significance of the Eureka Stockade and see the original Eureka Flag, a symbol of the struggle for democracy faced by miners.

Discover how our early settlers would have felt when you pan for gold and experience re-enactments and artifacts at the Sovereign Hill open air museum.

By the end of the tour, students return home enthused and in awe of how different life was in the days when gold nuggets could be unearthed with a pen knife.
