Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park in Victoria is one of the most outstanding gold rush-era sites in Australia for the rare snapshot it gives us into how people lived and worked in 19th-century gold fields. Visitors can see well-preserved artifacts and diverse mining sites, including miner's huts, Chinese market gardens, stone footings, shallow shafts and the Garfield Water Wheel in a bush environment. The park is open to visitors, with some areas open for camping. Follow walking tracks, take part in guided tours and fossick for gold.
Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park was included in the National Heritage List on 27 January 2005.
