We had a few hours to spare one afternoon, so we decided to check out the Perth Mint since it was quite close to our hotel.
We got there and realised there were specified tour times (which are mentioned on the website) - luckily a tour was starting in 5 minutes so we didn't have to wait long.
The tour is pretty interesting, noting the boom gold rush in WA as well as some interesting facts about the gold nuggets found in the area. Being from Melbourne, I had no idea about the history - and it was concise, and well worth listening to.
The best part of the tour came at the end when you are able to see a gold pouring demonstration. The guide melts up the gold into liquid form and makes a gold bar out of it. I have never seen anything like it. Itself is worth the admission!

Loved watching the gold pouring. The campsite out the back and the story of the two largest nuggets found. Looking at all the gold bullion and the display cases of different nuggets.

I learnt a lot about how coins are made, and how much technology has changed things. There are intruiging bits of history and wonders of todays day and age. Great for older kids and adults alike

Interesting visit to Perth Mint. Informative exhibitions on the creation and history of gold mining etc in Australia. My relative, a resident of Perth, hadn't been before! He intends suggesting this attraction to future visitors.
