Central Deborah Gold Mine – Bendigo, Australia


This location provides direct access to the gold mining underworld of Bendigo, which was responsible for Australia’s Victorian gold rush. In addition to the well-maintained surface facilities, this location offers explorers the option to go deep below the earth’s surface and travel through the upper levels of the gold mining tunnels picking up the local and global history and lingo along the way. If you are clever (and have small hands) you can even touch veins of gold still in the rock walls.

This location is very friendly for all ages, and it’s also quite safe as guides are there to make sure everyone gets back to the surface in one piece.
