The mid nineteenth century gold rush was the biggest global event of its time. People chased the lure of gold and prosperity all around the world and left their mark on the places we know and experience today. Some of us can trace our family history back to these events and many people visit and live in gold rush towns and landscapes in many areas of the world today.

Share your story of the gold rush and the places that remain today from this extraordinary period of world history.
