Pride of the mine - Central Deborah Gold Mine

Pride of the Mine

Join us for a private tour of Deborah's golden reef, 61 metres underground!

You'll be welcomed by the fabulous Deborah Triangle, a Bendigo icon who emerges from the depths once a year to invite visitors into her shadowy crevices.

With only the light on your helmet to light the path, and an expert tour guide to lead the way, you'll be enthralled by the honeycomb of hidden tunnels that lie far below Bendigo on a fascinating Mine Experience Tour.

Your guide will delve into Bendigo's golden heritage, the geology of the rock formations that are encountered, demonstrate the mining methods that were practised on the Deborah Reef and explain what it was really like to be a miner during the harsh gold rush era.

What's included:

Pride of the Mine is proudly presented by the Bendigo Pride Festival
