  • An unexpected gem and well worth a visit. We were amazed by how much work has clearly gone into the museum over the years and the quality of the exhibits. I wonder if advertising it as a mining museum is the best thing as it has just about everything, from an astonishing collection of seashells to a brass knuckle-duster that once belonged to Mrs W Davies.
  • The kids (aged 10, 11, 13) and I spent a good three hours wanding through gympie gold mining museum and loved it. $25 for a family pass was well worth it and the cafe became a necessity.
  • Great atmosphere. Terrific food. Learnt how to gold pan and even found gold!
  • Just bought a bloody beautiful egg and bacon roll... tastes great.
  • Allow yourself a couple of hours. There is a huge amount of historical information to read. Not only gold mining but all things historical around Gympie. Well worth a visit and the cafe onsite has yummy food for breakfasts through to lunches.
