Description

--- Bookings will be available from 10am, Monday 18 March 2019 ---

On 15 December 1851, 15,000 gold diggers gathered on a site within Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park to protest about an increased gold mining licence fee. Join us, in partnership with the Chewton Domain Society, for a guided walk around this historic Monster Meeting site.

This guided walking tour will be outdoors, and will take approximately 1.5hours. Please wear suitable walking clothing and footwear, and ensure you are protected from the sun.
