We purchased a family day pass and did 2 tours. The tipple and inside the mine. Loved them both and our guides were excellent. The kids were not super keen on this day to start, but we had a great time.

Had a great tour of this mine! The tour guides know their stuff, and it was very cool seeing the original buildings and shafts that are still there. The view at the top after climbing to the mine entrance is spectacular!
