Golden Triangle Camping

The Golden Triangle in Victoria encompasses the rich goldfields of Ballarat, Bendigo and surrounding areas that are legendary in their role during the colonial days of Victoria.

The Eureka Stockade, a rebellion against colonial rule by the gold miners of Ballarat, became a legend which even today holds historical and cultural significance in the building of our nation.

During the 19th century, rumours of a gold find had the effect of mobilising fortune seekers around the world to travel to distant lands in search of a fast road to riches. More often than not, it lead to hardship and despair. But that never stopped the stream of immigrants who were prepared to bet everything that they owned for the chance to find that elusive large gold nugget.

Today the golden triangle is golden for different reasons. Tourism of course has taken the place of the gold seekers as many amateur fossickers continue to dream of that magical metal and hope to find some. But the real gold of the Victorian inland plains is in the vast quantities of golden grain that is grown and harvested on the flat fertile plains each year.

Much of the region is under irrigation, with channels of water pumped from the various rivers, supplying broadacre grain, fodder and grazing.

Victoria is indeed a land of gold. In fact the world owes much of its ability to feed 7 billion people to an invention of the Victorian wheat fields. The Sunshine Harvester, invented by HV McKay in the 19th century, was the forerunner of the giant combine harvesters that are in use today, reaping the grainfields across the globe.
