Gulgong Gold Experience is located on Red Hill where gold was first found 1870 by Tom Saunders and so began what has often been referred to as, “the last of the poor man’s gold rushes”. By June of that year 500 people were on the Gulgong gold fields and by 1872, when the first official census was taken, it was estimated that the population of Gulgong and its satellite villages was approximately 20 000.
