A Grain of Gold
In 1851, Edward Hargraves discovered a ‘grain of gold’ in a waterhole
near Bathurst in New South Wales.
The discovery marked the beginning of the Australian gold rushes and a radical change in the economic and social fabric of the nation.
The gold rushes attracted an unprecedented volume of hopeful migrants from all over the world, known as ‘diggers’, bringing to Australia a diverse range of skills and professions, unthought of prior
to the discovery.
