our tour of the mint was entertaining, informative and just good fun, it is the tour guides that make it great, even went again a few weeks later to take a friend who came to visit, had a different tour guide but just as much fun

We had a few hours to spare one afternoon, so we decided to check out the Perth Mint since it was quite close to our hotel. We got there and realised there were specified tour times (which are mentioned on the website) - luckily a tour was starting in 5 minutes so we didn't have to wait long. The tour... More

Loved watching the gold pouring. The campsite out the back and the story of the two largest nuggets found. Looking at all the gold bullion and the display cases of different nuggets.

A very interesting and informative tour. If facts figuresand numbers are your thing you shouldn't miss it. If not then you still shouldn't miss it. The gold pour is fascinating, to see molten gold at 1300 degrees C then cool down to room temperature all within a few minutes or less is worth the visit. Take the chance to lift... More
