HOW LONG DOES IT
Allow 40 minutes for your visit. No need to book ahead during summer, unless there are over ten in your group - see "group bookings"
WHAT DO I NEED
TO GO UNDERGROUND?
The tour underground can be muddy, especially during the wetter months. Bring closed-toe footwear and a water proof jacket just in case, your own torch if you have one, and plenty of luck to strike it rich!
NOTICE OF UPGRADE
The machinery will be out of action for the next few months while the plant doubles in size with the installation of 10 Stampers. It's going to be a booming summer!
If you or anyone else in your group, has a dislike for being in confined dark spaces, then there are alternative activities for you to enjoy instead of the underground section of the tour - including gold panning!
