People came to Castlemaine in Victoria, Australia in great numbers from the 1850s in search of the world-renowned gold of Forest Creek.

Fewer fortunes were made than hopes were dashed, yet the town did become home for many adventurers.

Once again, Castlemaine is attracting people. This time the move is generally away from expensive, fast-paced Melbourne to a vibrant country town.

This is the story of what happened to those earlier people, of the homelessness that they brought with them from far away, and yet of how some managed to make a home.

It is about a particular place and time, and if is also the quintessential Australian settlement story.
