Tour of mint. Show you how coins are minted. They have a collection of high end jewellery and broome pearls. They have souvenirs and coin and stamp collections. Price ranges from reasonable to expensive. But make for a different gilt from Australia. Nice cafe also

A good place to take visitors, but it gets crowded and its hard to see things when the tourist buses come in. Get there early to enjoy

This is a good place to visit with a nice gift shop and you can trade your unwanted gold in with the appropriate paperwork. Nice gold coins to look at and an interesting gold pour and tour on admission. Good informative place to visit easy to access via the free red cat bus.
