Peninsula Hot Springs: A Developers Story

In the gold rush state of Victoria, theres a new rare find: liquid gold. Its pretty much a given that youll find hot mineral springs in relatively young lands of vaulting, geological upheaval like New Zealand, Alaska, and Japan. But in the ancient, stable rock strata of the Great Southern Land, it is thought a rare find, truly liquid gold. The Australian state of Victoria was the destination for waves of gold miners in the 1850s Californians, British, Irish and Chinese among them seeking their fortunes with pick and shovel.
