Golden Victoria three day small group personalised signature tour takes you into the Golden heart of Victoria.

Victoria's frenetic goldrush of the 1850's is one of the great gold rushes of the world and has left a lasting and vivid legacy.

You can see the evidence in every Goldfields town and city, with the splendid streetscapes of Ballarat, Bendigo, and Maldon, and in the grand buildings such as the Maryborough Railway Station and the Market Building in Castlemaine.
You can re-live the goldrush by panning for gold at Sovereign Hill in Ballarat and by going down a gold mine at the Central Deborah Goldmine in Bendigo. They take you to the main attractions of Ballarat and Bendigo, but we also take you off the tourist trail to show you the smaller towns and the out of the way places that are rich in goldrush history and heritage.

You experience the wildlife/wildflowers of the Goldfields region, which is colder and wetter on the southern side of the Great Dividing Range and is hotter and dryer on the northern side. A chance to spot kangaroo, echidna and wallabies, plus a myriad of birds in the forests and grasslands.
