Top things to see & do in Croydon

Croydon’s story began with the discovery of gold in 1885, Queensland’s last big gold rush.  Gold was what ran the economy in the region for four decades and during it’s heyday, Croydon was the fourth largest town in the colony of Queensland.  Begin your visit at the True Blue Visitor Information Centre, then head outside for a stroll through the Heritage Precinct.  You can see a restored 5 head gold mining stamper in the Mining Museum, located on the original Iguana Mine Site on the edge of town.
