The Victorian Gold rush was between 1851 to around 1870, with large amounts of gold being found and making Victoria a very wealthy state. Now you can visit the Victorian Goldfields in central Victoria with the main cities being Ballarat & Bendigo and the smaller towns including Daylesford, Castlemaine and Maryborough.
In Ballarat you will find Soverign Hill, a recreation of a 1850’s gold town and in Bendigo you can visit an old mine.
This area can be done in a day trip from Melbourne however to experience it fully it is better to saty in the area for a few days.
