During the gold rush, Dunolly and the surrounding district discovered more gold nuggets than anywhere else in Australia and became known as the “Golden Triangle”. Gold found in the area included the largest gold nugget in the world, the 69 kilogram “Welcome Stranger”, which was found in nearby Moliagul. See a replica of the famous nugget at the Goldfields Historical and Arts Museum.
Today Dunolly’s attractive main street is lined with kurrajongs and gold rush architecture. Stroll along Broadway, visit the museum and search for family history or visit the historic Court House and Town Hall.
Get on your bike and ride the Dunolly Cycle Tracks: a series of signed forest roads and tracks of varying length between 14 and 47 kilometres. As well as Dunolly, routes pass through the old gold towns of Tarnagulla, Bealiba, Waanyarra, Betley and Goldsborough.
