Discover the beauty and power of gold as you view an impressive and valuable collection of gold nuggets, priceless gold artefacts and gold coins.

A magnificent glass fronted building with commanding views, The Gold Museum offers an award winning gift shop specialising in the sale of gold nuggets and Australian-made gold jewellery and fine giftware.
