Old Gold Town in Central Victoria

The Central Victorian town of Dunolly is located on the traditional lands of the Dja Dja Wurrung people who called the area Lea Kuribur. During the Gold Rush of the 1850s, Dunolly and the surrounding district, more gold nuggets were discovered than anywhere else in Australia and became known as the "Golden Triangle". Gold found in the area included the largest gold nugget in the world, the 69 kilogram "Welcome Stranger", which was found in nearby Moliagul. See a replica of the famous nugget at the Goldfields Historical and Arts Museum.
