We visited here on a cool, drizzly Anzac Day.

They had a lovely fire going and were only too happy to tell us about the replica miners but, and the mining in the area.

Well worth a visit

This was a bit different. Several bearded miners there to talk to you and show you around. An old miners cottage experience.

This was recommended to us by a number of people. We rocked up gave a donation and then proceeded to get a personalised tour (watch out for the possum) which was equal parts funny and educational. One of the miners then proceeded to entertain the kids for a long time with tricks and riddles. We also got to hold a REAL gold nugget. Lots of fun!

True old timer miners with a wealth of experience in the local area. They look the part and offered an authentic experience for the kids. They really enjoyed asking a million questions on how to find gold and what all of the display items were and what they were used for.
