Like a pop-up folk museum, the whole of tiny Maldon is a well-preserved relic of the gold-rush era, with many fine buildings constructed from local stone. The population is significantly lower than the 20,000 who used to work the goldfields, but this is still a living, working town – packed with tourists at weekends but reverting to its sleepy self during the week.
