Our new banner is on display at the Avoca Information Centre nestled between the goldfields diorama and the replicas of some significant (read:enormous and very valuable) gold nuggets discovered in the region, including the Welcome Stranger.

Thanks to Big Cat Print, Maryborough and Marios at RMIT, for their production work.

 The Welcome Stranger weighed in at 2316 ounces and was discovered at Moliagul on 5th February 1869.  It’s value today  (5/12/2013) would be worth a cool $2,846,364 USD on weight alone.
