Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park

National Parks and Reserves

From the remains of house sites and puddling machines to the gold mines and gullies that yielded up fortunes, Australia’s first national heritage park harbours fascinating tales of a golden past and retains much of its gold-rush character.

Spring wildflowers, scenic drives, bushwalking, cycling, guided tours and gold fossicking are some of the highlights. Nearby Maldon Historic Reserve also protects many interesting relics from the gold era.
