Ellen Clacy was 20 years old when she and her brother travelled from England to the Australian goldfields in 1852. This was at the start of the ‘gold rush’, when thousands of people from around the world were arriving at the gold ‘diggings’. Ellen went back to England in 1853, and her book about her adventures became a huge success.
