The surface of the mine contains original buildings and equipment that were essential to the operation of Central Deborah in its mining days.
Explore the old Blacksmith's Shop, the First Aid Room and the Carbide Lamp Room.
You will be amazed by the Engine Room which contains the Winder that was installed in 1945 and is notable as the only complete working example in Australia. It is still used daily by our mine crew and for the Nine Levels of Darkness Tour.
The surface also displays buildings and plant equipment from other mines that used to operate in Bendigo, including the Deborah Extended, South Deborah, North Deborah and Monument Hill Mines.
Of course, your visit will not be complete without trying your hand at panning for gold!
