Tour­ing the In­digo Gold Trail

North East Tourist News - - BEECHWORTH -

IN­DIGO’S unique Gold Trail can now be ex­plored us­ing a smart­phone.

A Gold Trail app was de­vel­oped last year to help peo­ple nav­i­gate the rich his­tory of this his­toric trail.

The In­digo Gold Trail, of­fi­cially un­veiled in 2011, is a tour­ing route con­nect­ing the gold her­itage towns and sites of Beechworth, Ruther­glen, Chiltern and Yackan­dan­dah.

The route in­cludes dozens of his­toric sites in­clud­ing her­itage-listed build­ings and im­por­tant gold min­ing sites.

In­digo Shire Tourism de­scribes it as an evolv­ing col­lec­tion of gold his­tory, be­ing pre­served for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions to gain an un­der­stand­ing of how im­por­tant gold min­ing was in es­tab­lish­ing the re­gion.

The In­digo Gold Trail app al­lows peo­ple to ex­plore the sites and lis­ten to au­dios telling the tales of a by­gone era on their own mo­bile phone.

It was de­signed to pro­vide a bet­ter ex­pe­ri­ence for those ex­plor­ing the re­gion’s gold his­tory, al­low­ing them to learn more about the var­i­ous sites they visit through mod­ern, mo­bile tech­nol­ogy.

The In­digo Gold Trail app is avail­able free through both Ap­ple iTunes and Google Play for an­droid phones as a free down­load.
