Pioneers Memorial ParkPrint Page Print this page

A park commemorates the pioneers of Rheola.

Rheola, like its neighbouring districts, was founded as gold mining village during the gold rush in the second half of the 19th century. Originally named 'Berlin' , the mining village was based near Kangderaar Creek which runs though the area.

The Berlin Post Office was established on 15 February 1869 but was changed to the Rheola Post Office in November 1876 when the town changed its name to Rheola after the town in Wales.
