Daisy Hill a town in Victoria, Australia located in the Shire of Central Goldfields. The town began as a mining settlement, after a discovery of gold during the Gold Rush of 1853, the location became known as an extremely rich goldfield soon thereafter. Prior to this discovery, Daisy Hill had gained a particular notoriety, due to a gold rush in February 1849, that was based upon the claims made by one Thomas Chapman, a shepherd and former Parkhurst prison exile. Chapman sold a gold nugget to a Melbourne Jeweller, Mr. Brentani of Collins Street. Soon afterwards Chapman left the Port Phillip District for Sydney, although he returned again many years later.
Today Daisy Hill is home to around 300 people with a Community Centre Hall and tennis courts being the only public facilities, and last commercial shop in Daisy Hill closed around 2008.
