1 Tour per day only
As you are guided through the museum displays, see the various methods of mining for gold, the tools and machinery used, from man, horse power through to steam power.
At the outdoor museum help operate the authentic machines used during the 1850’s. Then head to the blacksmith shop where the guide will create a work of art in steel. Then try your hand at panning for the real gold that turned colonial Australia upside down during the scramble for wealth. Keep what you find. Great fun for all ages.
