Castlemaine Diggings Heritage Action Plan

Parks Victoria is reviewing the Heritage Action Plan for the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park. The Heritage Action Plan guides the management of places of cultural heritage in the park. The plan will inform the future management of the intact gold rush landscape which contains shallow alluvial and quartz gold, examples of mining techniques used, environmental impacts from mining and heritage buildings and burials. The plan will also identify visitor access infrastructure, signs and information at key sites.  

The plan will be finalised by June 2017.

Information provided by the public will be reviewed and may be used in the plan, any changes or impacts on specific groups will be subject to additional community consultation.
