Did the creeks and rivers of Australia run with gold?

Hordes of fortune-seeking migrants thought so and flocked from around the world to Australia’s gold fields. Their diaries, drawings and letters, together with images by TS Gill and others, tell of their adventures, the changes they wrought, their shattered illusions and their dreams. Gold Fever sought to challenge our perceptions of this turbulent and vital era of Australian history.

An exhibition from Sovereign Hill, Victoria jointly curated by the National Library of Australia.
