Did you know that the recent ABC Series Gold Diggers was partly filmed at Labassa? In this one-off event, come and learn about the Real Gold Diggers of Labassa Mansion.

Labassa Mansion was built on gold. Some residents made their fortune with a pick and shovel; others like Cobb & Co. owner Mr Robertson amassed millions through farsighted opportunism. Hear the stories of Labassa’s ‘gold diggers’ – the opportunists, entrepreneurs, fraudsters and big spenders. This special evening begins with refreshments at 6.30pm followed by a talk and guided house tour. See how gold transformed a once modest villa into one of Australia’s most lavishly decorated mansions.
