History

Mogo village was established after the discovery of gold in the area in the 1850s.

This gold rush attracted many diggers to the Mogo area and a thriving town of hotels, churches and shops was born. Mining continued in and around Mogo until the closure of the last mine in 1984, when the small village began attracting talented artists, craftspeople, and sellers.

Today, Mogo Village is a shopping delight full of specialty stores and cafes. When you visit Mogo you will find a huge range of handcrafted items, unique gifts and artworks for every taste. You can also enjoy our eateries with fantastic dishes and great coffee.

You will notice the ‘old time’ character of Mogo Village has endured, because many of the newer buildings have been designed to complement the surviving miners’ cottages.

Mogo is home to the Monaro and Yuin people who have significant heritage in the area with many Aboriginal sites and features being identified. In the language of the Yuin people the word ‘Mogo is said to mean ‘ Stone Axe and large camping ground’.

The Aboriginal history of the area includes locations such as Tomakin and Barlings Beach where Aboriginal families tell of the significant spiritual and cultural associations of this area.
