Here’s your chance to relive those days of gold rush fever with a hands-on experience panning for the precious metal yourself.
If you are keen to try your luck at unearthing gems or anything else you see as a treasure, have a fossick through the designated panning ponds.
If you strike it rich, you can pick up a vial from the gift shop and take home your spectacular find.
After you have finished panning for gold and gems, enjoy the self-guided tour that is a vibrant mix of gold rush history and modern-day mining consisting of over 35 exhibits. Main attractions include climbing aboard a giant 793C haul truck, and 994F loader, listening to Paddy Hannan tell his tale of discovery and finding instant tranquillity within the Chinese Garden of Remembrance.
