Great Southern

Great Southern, a former gold mining locality in north-east Victoria, is 7 km south-east of Rutherglen.

The Great Southern Gold Mining Company was formed in 1889, and the mines required intermittent sinking of the shafts and dewatering until coming into production in about 1900. By 1903-04 mining employed nearly 400 workers and peak production was achieved in 1904-05.
