Gold Rush Country

02 December - 05 December 2019

Try your luck panning for gold and explore a gold mine at fascinating Mogo. Known for its country charm rich colonial gold mining history, Mogo is located southwest of Batemans Bay and north of Moruya on the NSW South Coast. You’ll see goldmining equipment such as a working stamp battery and rock crusher. We will participate in a guided tour of the Original Gold Rush Colony (previously known as Old Mogo Town). We’ll also step back in time and discover life as it was for our pioneers on the goldfields at the Gold Rush Theme Park.

Staying in the unique Australian Bushland accommodation, nestled in the Mogo State Forest, this is accommodation with a difference and an experience for all to enjoy. With a huge camp kitchen, heated swimming pool, nearby beaches, walks and dining places all in a unique bush setting where wildlife and birdlife abound. We will relive the essence of life in the late 1800’s gold rush, but “rough it in comfort”.

Mogo Zoo proudly boasts the largest collection of primates in Australia. Their zebras and southern white rhinos wander the Savannah plains alongside their majestic giraffes and meerkats. Visitors to Mogo Zoo can experience their animals up close and personal, feeding a lion or tiger, or simply enjoying their affectionate red pandas. While we’re in the area, we’ll definitely pay the zoo a visit.

This package includes 3 night ensuite cabin accommodation, return transport from Wollongong location (we can assist with travel from other areas to the destination or meeting location), all main meals, all activities as per itinerary, staffing support and expenses at required level.

All you need to do is pack your bag and come along! Each participant will have access to photos taken on their holiday to share with family and friends. We have photo books available too!

We’ll have a few stops on the way to stretch our legs and refill our tummies. In the afternoon we’ll arrive at our home for the next few days, the Gold Rush Colony! We’ll unpack our gear, settle into our rooms and get ready for our first night in country comfort. We’ll gather round the camp kitchen for dinner and enjoy a campfire in the evening.

Later we’ll gather round the camp kitchen for dinner and enjoy our last campfire and sing-a-long together.
