Old Mogo Town first opened on a small scale in November 1991 and was acquired by the present owner in November 2000. Old Mogo Town is a reconstructed village depicting life in the Gold Rush days of the 1850’s, built on 4.5 hectares of Australian bushland nestled between Mogo Village and the Mogo State Forest.

Old Mogo Town is open every day except Christmas day, from 10am to 4pm. Informative, entertaining and educational tours (4 daily - 10.30am, 12 noon, 1.30pm and 3pm) transport visitors to a long forgotten world of hardship and deprivation, where fortunes were made and dreams shattered.

Pan for real gold, visit the antique machinery shed, get a ‘wanted’ picture taken by our in-house photographer, check out authentic buildings and static displays, and listen to the on–site working rock crusher. Schools experience the wood-turner and blacksmith with a hold-up by the notorious “bloodiest bushrangers” the Clarke brothers, Thomas and John.

Old Mogo Town is a stay-another-day tourist attraction offering 3½ star accommodation in cabins or bunkrooms and can accommodate up to 105 guests. All cabins are self contained and can sleep up to 9 people. Make use of the communal camp kitchen for cooking up a storm.

Our Diggers Rest Tavern function room seats 100 guests for weddings with the rustic feel, school groups and conferences. This offers guests the opportunity to take one step beyond the day experience.

Old Mogo Town has won many awards in Heritage and Cultural Tourism.
