Experience a real coal mine, it's easy to imagine yourself as a coal-miner as you tour the workings. Excellent guides who 'know their stuff'!

Had a great time! Did the Day Pass and everything was timed perfectly so we got to do all the tours. Very entertaining and educational. Bring sunscreen, light clothing, and sturdy shoes. Plan for at least 3-4 hours.
