Precinct of Eureka is now identified with the site of the Eureka rebellion but was first strongly identified with the Irish miners who worked the Eureka Deep Lead, a very wet and dangerous lead. The remains of mining activity meant that Eureka held few permanent buildings until the mines were filled and capped in the twentieth century. The Park Reserve which contains the Eureka Monuments and the new Eureka Centre are visible reminders of the Eureka heritage. [1]
