Enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide in a small bus. Recommend it and gave a meal at one of the pubs. Support our rural tours.

Only way to see the mine is by the TMC Tour, but it's such a great way to do it, as the tour guide and her father (driver) were a wealth of knowledge on the mine and the whole Mount Morgan area. There wasn't a question they could not answer, and the information they imparted was excellent. The displays in... More

Very interesting indeed. Loved the visit to the main officers and all the equipment used years ago. We did the bus tour and the guide was very good. Also go and see the museum, excellent, we have taken visitors from the UK heaps of times. Take sunscreen and a hat and plenty of water, it can be a long hot... More

We had a very good enjoyable tour, the guide was good and it was interesting seeing the history of the town and disturbing to see the terrible impact mining has had on the environment

The guide was really good to us, even though we were the only ones on his tour. Mt Morgan mine is not in operation anymore, but it was an insight to learn about the town.

Enjoyed our tour and the history of the mine. Due to safety issues we were unable to see the dinosaur footprints. The old admin building had some great displays. Very interesting town with some great attractions, the museum and the rail museum are def worth a look as well and don't forget to buy a pie from the bakery, mmmmmmmm!

The tour takes a couple of hours and takes in the mining experience of the old town. Mount Morgan is reliant on tourism these days and is well worth a visit. The tour guide and her Dad (the driver) are a fountain of knowledge of the place and only want to be asked to fill you in with the history... More

Not a bad tour around the area and old gold mine. Ashame more money can't go into preserving the wonderful old buildings. Worth a visit for half a day!

There was even an old street light that was still standing. There are a lot of derelict buildings as well. There is the information centre which... More
