Self-guided Surface Tour
Take your time to explore above ground at Hannans North Tourist Mine and discover the secrets of gold rush history and modern day mining in the Goldfields.
After listening to Paddy Hannan tell his tale of discovery, you can find your fortune panning for gold, and try your hand at the legendary game of “Two-Up”. Walk through original buildings relocated from mine sites along the Golden Mile, including an historical dynamite room and the Paringa Gold Room which was in use from 1920. The Daisy Mae Engine room is home to beautiful early 1900s engines which are still in working condition today. Our Prospectors Campsite lets you see how miners of the 1890s lived and worked and gives you an idea of how tough life was in the early Goldfields.
Hannans North also allows you to experience modern day mining as you climb aboard a giant 793C haul truck, stand in the shovel of a 994F loader, and go inside a modern underground refuge chamber where up to twelve people can survive for seventy-two hours.
