My friend and I both live and work in Perth (originally from Scotland) and decided to pop in here one afternoon to kill a few hours - the time was well spent, informative and interesting - I'd defo recommend and take along visiting friends and family :)

very reasonably priced the tour is worth a visit, just try picking up the gold bar in the case with one hand. they show you how the gold is heated and moulded in a 15 minute show well worth seeing

I really liked the tour and the gold pour. Our guide was great. Some people have bagged on this tour as not being that great. I liked it, but I am a gold bug. The outback camp display is a bit contrived, but the gold displays are awesome. You actually get to lift the 400 ounce bar and feel it. The nugget displays are great and of course the gold pour. Due to security you cannot take pictures inside, but it was a lot of fun. Check the opening and closing times. They close early on Saturday.

This is a good attraction you pay a small fee to tour the mint and this includes some history of the gold rush and the melting of gold to make coins. The mint is still operational making gold coin for collectors.

The perth mint tour was quite interesting to learn all the history, throughly enjoyed. There arent any toilet facilities here and it was a shame the cafe closes so early in the afternoon.
