Old Mogo Town - experience the authentic thrills of the gold rush era

Mogo offers a wide range of attractions in a relaxed old world atmosphere and is the perfect place to spend a couple of days.

Mogo started life as a gold mining town during the 1850’s.

The discovery of gold in the Cabbage Tree Creek in 1857 sparked Mogo’s gold rush and overnight 200 diggers appeared on the scene and a new town was born. At its peak Mogo had several hotels and churches, a host of shops and a public school.

The diggings were mainly alluvial and gold from Mogo was of the best quality and rated as high as 22 carats. A twenty-one ounce nugget was the largest ever recorded at Old Mogo Creek. However the boom did not last long and Mogo gradually declined and became a sleepy backwater.

In the late 1980’s Mogo became the home of a small group of craftspeople and artists and this started Mogo’s second “rush”. Mogo grew rapidly with the influx of many more craftspeople together with antique shops, coffee shops and other attractions.

The old-time atmosphere of Mogo was maintained with the new buildings being built to complement the surviving miner’s cottages. The atmosphere was enhanced by the potteries, galleries and other craft shops that brought a rich cultural feel to Mogo.
