No visit to Kalgoorlie is complete without a visit to Hannans North Tourist Mine, where you will experience a vibrant mix of gold rush history and modern day mining. During your visit you can climb a giant 793C haul truck, stand in the shovel of a 994F loader, listen to Paddy Hannan tell his tale of discovery, pan for gold and try your hand at the legendary game of "two up". After exploring you are welcome to make use of the free BBQ facilities or have a picnic in the Garden of Remembrance. Before leaving, pick up a unique souvenir in our gift shop.

This place is great for all ages. Step back in time to gold rush days plus see modern day mining equipment. Try your hand at panning for gold or gems. Only $14 entry for adults.

Staff were super friendly and we had a nice walk around looking at the displays. You are able to climb up into the big dump truck and even get to pan for gold near the end of the tour, but no gold to be found.
