Built in the late 1800s, the Beaufort Fire Station serves the sleepy town of Beaufort, Australia. Originally known as a gold mining town, Beaufort took part in the Victorian gold rush in the mid 1800s. During that time, the population of the town reaches about 100,000 (compared to the 2016 population of just over 1,500!) and produced almost half a million ounces of gold. Now, the town traded gold for music and currently known for hosting a five day arts and music festival, entitled the Rainbow Serpent festival, held on the outskirts of town.
