The Johannesburg Gold Rush

Experience a magical trip down memory lane with Gold Reef City’s Heritage tour.

Enter the historical world of Johannesburg’s gold rush and experience a history lesson that you’ll definitely enjoy on our Heritage Tour.

What is included in the guided Heritage Tour

Experience Rich Beginnings as we invite you to join Veli, a modern-day schoolboy as he takes the journey of a lifetime in the company of Joe, a well-weathered prospector from the late 1800s or descend into the depths of the earth and discover the riches of South Africa’s history on our underground mine tour.

There's nothing quite like the magnificent glow that emanates from the molten liquid gold pour. This is an experience of the heart, soul and mind that you will never forget!

Then search for the elusive specs of gold that hold the promise of wealth the way it used to be done. Pan the mud in freezing cold water by hand and experience the euphoria of finding a shiny spec among the dirt.

Don’t forget to visit our Museum Houses where you will find Mr Ohlthaver's House, Dowse House and Oosthuizen House.

It is most definitely a magical trip down memory lane!
