Very interesting place to visit with the owner/guide. Great historical significance for Australia during WW2.

The scale of this place is amazing, for something with such a short life span, and so remote from a transport point of view in the 1930s. It is a shame that it is not better known, and only open on Saturday afternoons.

This was a fascinating tour back into an amazing story in the history of Australia. Our Tour Guide Alex was a wealth of information about that history and she was a delight in her friendliness and how she shared her knowledge and insights into the history of Glen Davis. This place is a must see if you are interested in Australian history. The stories of the shale mine and the oil works rise and fall, the reasons behind it and the people involved will enthrall you as you walk among the silent remains of the buildings and you imagine it teeming with life in its heyday. Glen Davis really is an amazing place to visit and the scenery is stunning!

Was looking forward to seeing this but discovered its only open Saturdays. Locals were not willing to make an exception and allow us in for a tour.
