Jozi's Story
of Gold

Experience the Johannesburg
Gold Rush

Gold Reef City’s Heritage Tour offers unique insight into the historical world of Johannesburg’s gold rush. This interactive history lesson brings to life the founding of Johannesburg and the discovery of gold on the reef – it doesn’t get more real than descending 75 meters underground to discover the riches of South Africa’s history on an underground mine tour or witnessing the magnificent glow of a live gold pour!

Where does the Heritage Tour take you?

Join your Rich Beginnings virtual tour-guide Veli, a modern-day schoolboy as he takes you on a journey in the company of Joe, a well-weathered prospector from the late 1800s. Pan for elusive specs of gold that hold the promise of wealth the way it used to be done in freezing cold water by hand and experience the euphoria of finding a shiny spec among the dirt.

And for a magical trip down memory lane visit our Museum Houses where you will find Mr Ohlthaver’s House, Dowse House and Oosthuizen House.
