We went to Silverton for a sight seeing day. Very disappointing The day dream mine had open signs as we tracked down the hazardous dirt road. Thankfully 2 nice men stopped us and let us know the mine was closed. Very disappointedMore

On the way back to Broken Hill from Silverton, we took the turn off to this mine. Well worth while but not for those who don't like confined areas. Run by a husband and wife team, it gives you an insight to the very difficult...More

The mine is 12km along an unsealed road that tends to get progressively worse as you approach the minesite. I had hoped to get on the 10am tour but the queue moved slowly and it was closed off before I reached the front. However somewhat...More

I liked the tour. It was informative and it was pretty cool going underground to see the working conditions for 19th and 20th century miners. Equally good for children and older people, although the descent to level one involved being hunched over for a bit....More

Visited with husband. Jovial ticket seller but I was surprised that Devonshire Tea was not included in the $32 per adult admission. The property exuded an old time Outback air, with buildings and equipment made from whatever the owner of the time could use. Our...More

I don't believe so. It is quite narrow and dark going down but then it opens up. I know children are $12. Hope this helps.
