Wow, what an amazing, well informed and wonderful tour for anyone who is interested in history and the wilderness. This tour takes you on a trek back through time. The tour guide (Paul) knows his stuff. He is informative, friendly, professional, and extremely passionate about what he does. My 85-year-old father wanted to revisit his past as a little boy in a once thriving tin mining town on the wild west coast of Tasmania. He was extremely impressed by the knowledge, comfort, and experience of the entire tour. When asked out of 10 how this tour rated, my adventurous husband gave it an all-rounded 10. My father gave it 14 :-) A must do when visiting Waratah or anywhere on the West Coast.

Well what a fantastic few hours. Paul’s knowledge of the old mine area of Magnet was amazing. He knew all the old locations of every building including where my Nanny use to reside. The 4WD buggy was awesome. We were able to cover some interesting tracks. I can thoroughly recommend this tour to everyone. Simply eye opening....

Thank you Paul for sharing the stories of the now forgotten Magnet mine and township. You made the history real for us..and fun too! The tour was a highlight of our visit to the West Coast region of Tasmania. We are a family of two adults and one teenage boy.

My partner and I had no idea what to expect on this tour. We were pleasantly surprised what we were shown and the knowledge Paul has of the area. Crazy to think there was a town of about 600 people once living at Magnet. When shown the old photos, it put the tour into a more 'life like' experience. Well thought out tour. Paul was very personable and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and wouldn't hesitate to recommend, if you have a couple of hours to spare whilst in the area.
