Each year the Eureka Centre welcomes people from around the world who seek a meaningful connection to one of Australia’s most significant foundation stories – the Eureka Rebellion.
Eureka Centre is located at the National Heritage-listed Eureka Stockade Memorial Park, considered to be the site of the 1854 Eureka Stockade where the rebellion took place. It is home to one of Australia’s most compelling historic artefacts and textile treasures – the Eureka Flag.
The Eureka Stockade resonates profoundly in Australia’s national story. It was a transformative social movement that informed the development of democracy in Australia. At the Eureka Centre we explore the social history and cultural impact of the Victorian gold rush and honour the stories of the men and women who risked their lives in the ﬁght for miners’ rights.
The Eureka Stockade Memorial Park is a place to contemplate the events of Eureka. The many layers of Eureka commemoration are reflected through its significant trees, interpretive plaques and monuments that honour those involved in the Eureka Stockade.
