Beechworth - Indigo Gold Trail Audio Tour



Indigo Gold Trail - Today, in and around Beechworth, Chiltern, Rutherglen and Yackandandah, and the villages and countryside in between, the legacy of the rush for gold remains - from the perfectly preserved streetscapes of the towns to the countless mine shafts and mullock heaps to astonishing water races sluiced through solid granite; from Chinese Burning Towers and pioneer graves to historic government buildings, schools and museums all dating from those early, heady days of the gold rush.

The Indigo Gold Trail takes in some of the most picturesque countryside in Australia and includes scores of easily accessible sites identified by storyboards featuring the trail logo.

Take a fascinating audio tour of the Indigo Gold Trail with noted journalist and documentary maker, Kirsty Hawkes. Over 22 tracks Kirsty brings to life the history, key players, extraordinary technologies, political machinations and every day lives of the thousands of people from around the world who rushed to Beechworth, Yackandandah, Chiltern, Rutherglen and beyond to make their fortunes.

The audio tour takes you from one corner of the Indigo Gold Trail to the other to many fascinating sites and truly beautiful places. You can download the tour on to your own IPod, smart phone, MP3 Player, desktop, laptop or notebook or hire a portable player from any of the Visitor Information Centres in the area (Beechworth, Rutherglen, Chiltern and Yackandandah).
