Great to visit local mining history and encourage maintaining our history. One of the original sites for gold finds in vic. Locals are building history specifically for the area. Would have liked more link to other regions in the area or more local detail. On the right track and I suspect further information will consolidate in the future.

Have you ever had a dream of finding gold?...getting rich quickly?...well here in Clunes as well as in all Victorian previous gold mining sides you can get that feeling which came from middle of 19th century. Small town build quickly that time to accomodate all searchers of gold . Now we can only have an imagination of what happened here... More

We stopped into Clunes while visiting the Ballarat area. Just like the museum, there are a few more old buildings to see if you like history. The museum was no longer open from what we could see, but many of the old shops are only open on the week ends.
