We enjoyed the underground tour. Wasn't at all claustrophobic. This is a working mine, still in use. Very well laid out and gives you an idea of how it was worked back in the 'old days'. Still pretty hard work, I reckon. It is lovely and cool underground so don't be afraid to book a tour in summer. We bought... More

Even though the kids had a ball and enjoyed heading down under ground and then fossicking through some wash I felt a little under whelmed with the whole experience.A little more interaction from the guide during the mine tour then during the fossicking...

Thank you Marissa and Ruby Fran for such a fun day fossicking for sapphires. You explained everything really well and we spent nearly two hours at the fossicking tables,finding some lovely stones. Our lunch in the cafe was even better though. Try the Miners' Burger, it was beautiful and chatting to Ruby Fran made our day. Thank you!

what a great way to get "the whole experience" on the fields, starting out with a mine tour of an underground working mine, and see how miners get their stone, a bit of history, and get some knowledge of where the sapphire "runs", and perhaps do a bucket of wash, to learn how to find and identify your stones, or...

Our guide Rachael was so good and gave us great hints on what to do & also helped Greg with... More
