The mine is renowned (ambiguously) for being the hottest mine in Australia. The Gold mining operations in Stawell have been in operation more recently since the first owners commenced in the eighties. The current owners are Crocodile Mining and have several other mines. The Gold mine has a large viewing area along Reefs Road that runs alongside the portal that enters the mine and continues for approx. 2-3 kilometres in many different directions under the city of Stawell. The observation area has a commentary device activated by visitors to the attraction and visitors can observe the large mining machinery working the mine and also listen to the mining history in Stawell (since 1870's). There are many facets to the visitor area including a heavy bar that repesents the wieght of a REAL gold ingot bar (similar to those poured at the mine in the foundry). The mine at times offers observation tours to SOME areas of the mine IF the request is reasonable and can be negotiated with the owners/administration of the mining operations. « less
