In this fifth series of Aussie Gold Hunters, the biggest-ever group of gold-hungry prospectors battle the country’s harshest environments in a desperate bid to strike it rich.

Across twenty episodes we’re thrust into the peaks and slumps of the gold season as teams hunt out their critical targets – braving searing heat, bushfires, mechanical breakdowns, snakes and the constant pressure to carve out a living in the precarious hunt for gold.

Aussie Gold Hunters is an unscripted, character-based factual series, set against the epic backdrop of the remote goldfields of Western Australia and Victoria.
