Goldmine Experience

Tararu Rd, Thames

Contact

The Goldmine Experience is a guided tour which takes you through operating 19th century gold-mining machinery, run by volunteer enthusiasts, and underground into one of the richest goldmines of the time. See efforts to restore steam and water-powered engines, a large photo display of early hotels and mines and try your luck at gold panning.  

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Allow 40 minutes for your visit. No need to book ahead during summer, unless there are over ten in your group - see "group bookings"

WHAT DO I NEED TO GO UNDERGROUND?
The tour underground can be muddy, especially during the wetter months. Bring closed-toe footwear and a water proof jacket just in case, your own torch if you have one, and plenty of luck to strike it rich!
