  • The best tour I have been on in a while. Better than all expectations. I will not give why away but if in Perth it’s a must. Our guide, Caroline was amazing and clearly loved what she was doing. Well done!
  • Best thing I did in Perth. Greg the guide was outstanding, hilarious and clearly loves his job! Absolutely the best value for money attraction I have ever been to! Loved all the coins and little bits inside. You can even make custom coins. They can print nearly anything you want on them. I would 100% recommend if you are in Perth to go on the tour and check it out.
  • Very informative and the staff were amazing. Very knowledgeable but also very welcoming and interesting. I love that they make a big deal of the kids at the end of the tour presenting them with a pure plastic gold medal!🤭 Just awesome! Had a fabulous time, the gold pour was also very cool and the exhibits were excellent!
  • A great tour! We did not know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. Caroline, the guide was really cool, and came up with so much interesting stuff. And what a great idea to do the gold pouring.
  • A truly fascinating piece of Western Australia history. Greg, our tour guide was fantastic and all the other staff were super friendly. A must have place to visit in Perth and one that's very affordable. Highly recommended.
