15 years ago there was nothing but a pamphlet and a shed full of very old interesting machinery, now you get to walk a circular trail up to 'Main Street' - who could imagine amongst the bush and grass that's there now, that then there...More

This was so interesting. To actually enter a mine and hear all the history. Simply amazing. Garth was a wonderful tour guide, driving us there and telling us everything. Remember to take shoes that can get wet and don't be afraid of the dark :)
