Golden Gully, VIC

Golden Gully was in the vicinity of Fryers Creek which was rushed in late 1851. The road from Chewton to Fryerstown generally follows the course of Golden Gully, and there was a considerable amount of closer settlement around this road from the 1850s until the end of major gold activity during World War I. It is likely that what the census collector termed as ‘Golden Gully’ in 1891 was this mining centre on the road north of Fryerstown, outside the town’s reserve, and with a population of 49.
