The Eureka Centre
The Eureka Centre explores the cultural impact of the gold rush and tells the stories of the men and women who risked their lives in the fight for miners’ rights. Located at the historic site of the 1854 Eureka Stockade, the Eureka Centre is home to one of Australia’s most iconic cultural objects - the Eureka Flag (The Flag of the Southern Cross).
The centre is surrounded by the scenic Eureka Stockade Memorial Gardens. It is a perfect place to grab a coffee, enjoy the wonderful park surrounds and learn more about the Eureka story.

The centre provides teachers and students with tools and experiences to deepen their understanding of the Eureka Stockade and the profound political reforms that followed. Led by professional educators, these programs give students and teachers the opportunity to view the original Eureka Flag and explore the interactive Eureka Stockade exhibition.
The programs are designed to deliver curriculum outcomes in History, Civics and Citizenship and English, and can be delivered to students in early childhood, primary, secondary and VCAL. Education visits to the museum can be adapted to meet the specific curriculum needs of individual groups.
