Underground Adventure Tour


Gear up in overalls, boots, miner’s hat and lamp. Climb ladders, work a mine drill and search for gold with finders keepers!

Descending to the third level of the mine, 85 metres underground, you will be mesmerised by the lure of gold and the stronghold that it had over people as you explore the underground tunnels, drifts and stope workings that still contain gold veins.

This tour also includes a traditional ‘miner’s lunch’ served in the Underground Function Room where you will get a delicious taste of what life was like working underground.

Afterwards, explore the surface of the mine with its treasure trove of vintage mining machinery, gold panning and interpretive museums.
