There are walk-throughs organised on a regular basis every day and it's worthwhile to tag along and listen to the experienced guide who speaks of the place's history, the largest gold ever mined etc. There's also a live gold bar making demonstration which is a highlight. Various forms of souvenir are available at the souvenir shops as keepsake or gifts to others.

Learnt a lot from the tour, especially the gold pour which was fantastic. Worth the money.
