The Victorian Goldfields region is strongly associated with the 1850's Victorian gold rush, with many remnants of the rush remaining throughout the area. Gold prospecting is a local tradition which has endured since the old days, and is practiced in the Victorian Goldfields by both locals and tourists.

There are many informative resources available for those interested in prospecting in the Victorian Goldfields, including gold prospecting shops/centres, gold prospecting tours, the Prospectors' and Miners' Association of Victoria website, goldfields maps, online forums and social media groups. 

Another valuable resource is the growing number of YouTube channels created by local prospectors in the Victorian Goldfields, which document their gold discoveries, equipment tests, prospecting methods and more. 

Check out the following list of YouTube channels based in the goldfields of Victoria. Know of any others? Get in touch and let us know, it will be added to the list.
