  • Well worth a look the owner makes for a enjoyable visit.
  • What a great place this little gem was! Allan was a great tour guide and new a lot of local history. He helped me with some research that I needed and I am very grateful. He takes bookings only unless he's there already. $10 pp was an absolute bargain. Thanks mate for keeping the history alive.
  • Great fun for the kids. I took my boys there and they loved panning for gold - they even scored a couple of gold flecks. Tony was great with the kids they loved his tales of years gone by, and especially his accordion rendition of twinkle twinkle.
