The Original Gold Rush Colony

The Colony (formerly Old Mogo Town) is a re-created 1850s gold rush town and theme park. This award-winning New South Wales South Coast tourism attraction is an educational, historical and cultural venue.

Informative tour guides retrace the story of life during the 1850s Gold Rush, including the adventures of Australia's 'bloodiest' bushrangers, the Clarke Gang.

See the working Stamp Battery, explore the Gold Mine, mining town buildings, and pan for your own real gold.

Assisted wheelchair access to most exhibits. Picnic areas beside peaceful lakes and gardens. Run the Eureka themed Mogo Maze, fun for everyone.

School and group excursions are a speciality, with a range of activities to stimulate and educate through participation, known as 'Hands on History'. On-site accommodation, full catering and functions available.

Surrounded by Mogo State Forest.
