Jobs

There were butchers, blacksmiths, post office masters, sweet makers, grocers and many more.

Children

Children often came with their parents to the goldfields. They had to do household chores such as: carrying wood, looking after the tents or huts, cared for horses or fossicking among the left over gravel and sand.

Children also had to go to school, but since the gold was being discovered in different places and there weren't many schools children sometimes didn't even go to school.
