Mogo

In 1857, the discovery of a single nugget sparked a gold rush in the Batemans Bay area that saw the town grow to a population of 10,000 virtually overnight. When the boom was over, Mogo has turned to tourism in recent times thanks to its collection of historic buildings and new attractions. Mogo is very much an inspiration for artisans with many taking up residence in or nearby.

The Original Gold Rush Colony is a re-creation of the 19th century gold rush village, complete with historic mining equipment, shops, huts and slab houses and a walk-through mine. With accommodation, families can truly step back in time to experience the gold rush era.

Dedicated to the preservation of more than 42 rare and endangered species, Mogo Zoo houses red pandas, snow leopards, otters, lions, Bengal tigers and more. Mogo Zoo is renowned as the home of the pride of white lions.
