  • Good educational tour. Exhibits are a little run down but worth to take your time to understand how coal drove the economy of Victoria in the past. There is an underground tour which I have missed. Hope to see some reviews about it.
  • Brilliant place with a great team of people keep in it going. Some great old machinery along with a stream train. Fantastic cafe with a big selection of Aussie classics. The coal mine tour is obviously the highlight with super friendly guides taking you round and sharing their stories. Great day out for the family.
  • This was a surprise. Been planning to go for years. Tour was really engaging and interesting. Took my 3 boys who struggled a bit with the low roof (they are 195, 197 and 203 cms tall though!) but all part of the fun. A good way to spend a couple of hours. Fred was a great tour guide also!
  • Good place to go and learn some history. Staff are friendly and polite. The kids enjoyed going down into the mine and seeing how the coal was gathered and removed.
  • Surprisingly enough it was actually a great tour. I did not expect that much however the guide was so amazing. He enhanced what it could have been just a walk underground with local stories and his experience as a young boy in the mine. A great fun
