Bendigo highlight
Oct. 2020
Loved seeing the sights of Bendigo. Such a lovely historical town. The highlight of my trip was the Central Deborah mines and going down in the small lifts. The guide was very informative and interesting. I learnt a lot about how the miners lived in those times. A bit eerie being down so far, but exciting.

Jul. 2021
Wonderful tour for the four of us ( 2 adults, 3.5 and 6 year olds). The highlight of our tour was our wonderful tour guide Nathan - very knowledgeable, and really good with the kids - even offering them very valuable life advice about hard work, and made our 3.5 year old daughter especially feel very appreciated.

Highly recommend for interesting insights into this historic area of Victoria!

Well worth the visit
Jul. 2021
Went down to level 2 with Zoe our guide, middle of school holidays so lots of kids around, we thought Zoe did a really good job keeping everyone together and keeping kids and older kids entertained, she was well informed about the mine and kept us all entertained with her stories about the area and mining in general.
I think she made the whole tour.
Also had a very tasty miners Pastie in the store before the tour, well worth waiting in the que for.

Very knowledgeable tour guide, interesting tour and getting to go so far underground was pretty amazing. The remains of the mine up above could do with more explanation but was still interesting to look at all the machinery etc. Learnt lots!
