  • The information around the mine was very interesting however we found the stuff outside the mine not all that great. This is probably just us and our kids.

  • After watching this on our Televisions screens it seemed appropriate to visit this site when in Tasmania in October 2022. A very moving display and Centre to visit and would recommend it to anyone...

  • Not your boring museum or exhibition. Very interactive for children and can get lost in all the amazing history. The kids really enjoyed panning for gold. I loved the gift shop.
  • Amazing story of survival amidst tragedy. Appreciate the history and sombre experience but well worth the visit. Pay my respects to the minors, their contribution to making Australian great and their risk and sacrifice in doing so.
