Goldfields Gothic - Festival of Dark Ideas


Show more sessions


All Ages

Listed by


As part of the annual Maldon in Winter series, this new festival celebrates the dark side of the goldfields with performances, tours, themed food experiences, conversations on dark topics and a range of strange and unforgettable happenings sure to surprise, delight, incite and excite you.

From the 1850s the Victorian goldfields were home not only to miners, but also a darker undercurrent of ghost-hoaxers, spiritualists and secret societies. Inspired by these intriguing stories of the past, Goldfields Gothic showcases the dark side of the goldfields in all its gruesome glory.

Festival events include The Gothic and Victorian Picnic – a free family-friendly event in Maldon’s shire gardens; a live performance by legendary Australian dark alternative band Ikon; a special meeting of the internationally renowned Death Café at Café Maldon, a uniquely crafted Dark High Tea at Maldon Rose, Ghost Tours by award-winning spook sleuths Twisted History and a street display of collectible Hearses.
