“Ok but overated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Its hard to see what the pit really was with the water approaching the top, but it is still quite an amazing site. It is amazing how the miners risked their lives to create the largest open Pit of it's days

This was part of our trolley tour and we noticed other people who had paid to look out on the Pit were hanging around listening to our tour guide. He was great!

“Must see”

This is a hugh pit with lots of self guided displays to help you understand significance. It is also on the trolley stop. We just drove there and enjoyed viewing the historical mining pit.
