Diggings Museum

Melville St

Diggings Museum exhibits the history of the alluvial diamond rush that caused prospectors to storm the area between 1926-35. Many of the prospectors who staked their claim were successful and in 1927 the world's largest red diamond (called the Pigeon Red Blood) was found in the area and purchased by De Beers.
