A Place Called Moonlight
A Place Called Moonlight

George Moonlight's discovery of payable gold in Moonlight Creek in April 1865 was followed soon after by the typical "rush" as diggers again sought their fortunes in new ground.  What set the Moonlight goldfield apart was the coarse gold it yielded, particularly the large nuggets.

While Moonlight still gives up some promising "colour" and the odd small nugget to modern fossickers, arguably the real treasure lies in the pages of this book.  Within its covers is a fine collection of stories and photographs that tell of the history, the hardships and eventual settlement of a community and district that still proudly calls itself "Moonlight".

Price: $60.00
