Let your students hear and experience real life stories and dramatisations of how it was to live on the Gold Fields. With thousands of diggers from all kinds of backgrounds set up along the Turon River - each person had only one thing on their mind and that was to strike it RICH!

The students will learn about the different types of gold that were present and the ways of mining their claims in 1852, an era when the Military and Gold Commissioners had control of the gold fields and would carry out licence checks which were called licence hunts. Strike Me Lucky - Australia's short but full of informative fun of Australia's Gold Discovery will take your school back to the period of time between 1851 from the first public discovery of gold at Ophir to 1855 and twelve months after Eureka Stockade and the Sovereign Queen is Queen Victoria of England.

The performance will allow students to explore the influences of gold and the Australian identity, environment and heritage.

    The children felt like they were "in the moment" when stories were told. They thoroughly enjoyed volunteering for the various acting parts. It was a fun, humorous performance and the costumes and props were superb. Thank-you for giving the grade 5's such a memorable show..
