When in 1848 gold was found in California, a rush began that in two years had drawn a quarter of a million people from all round the globe - the greatest migration since the Crusades.
7,000 Australians and New Zealanders responded to the lure. Few of these Forty-Niners struck it rich; most were glad to earn the price of a ticket home, where, in 1851, Australia itself became the new El Dorado.
