The first gold was found in 1823 at Bathurst, N.S.W but the "Gold Rush" did not start until the 1850s.

Gold was found in Victoria in 1851, Queensland in 1858, Tasmania in 1886 and in Western Australia in 1886.

Hundreds of thousands of people came to Australia. They came from Britain, Ireland, Europe, North America and China.
