Walk marks gold mining journey

Walkers passed through Ararat this week on a journey in memory of Chinese gold miners.

Twenty participants are making the 20-day, 500-kilometre trip from Robe to Ballarat.

Planned to commemorate the trip made by Chinese gold miners 160 years ago, visits with descendants of the gold miners to heritage sites have been part of the experience.
