  • The heritage centre was a great display with its interactive equipment, local history and detail on the mine rescue from 2006. I recommend it for any group to see.  more »
  • The centre is part history, part ruins, part educational and totally engrossing. There is something for everyone with many interactive exhibits that keep kids entertained (both big and little ones!). ...  more »
  • Enjoyable wander back in time with the old machines, and a moving Memorial to the Beaconsfield Mine disaster and rescue.  more »
