This school holidays, children and parents alike have the chance to find gold in Bathurst.
Bathurst Goldfields will host public tours on weekdays from 1pm to 3pm throughout the remaining weeks of the school holidays.
And while there'll be a chance for people to go panning for real gold, tour guide Garry Pomeroy said he'll also show people through the museum.
"We'll talk about how the first paid gold was discovered in 1851 near Ophir," he said.
"It was actually found in 1823 first but it was covered up because the government didn't want people leaving their jobs.
"We'll also explain the different types of gold and talk about the history of gold panning."
The tour will also provide the opportunity for people to explore and view the replica shafts, steam shed and blacksmith.
And of course there'll be a chance to strike it rich with gold panning.
Cost for entry is $20 for high school students and adults, $10 for children and $50 for a family (two adults and two children).
Children under the age of five get in for free.
