Access to the mine lookout (free of charge) is via a relatively steep zigzag sealed pathway with convenient benches along the way to rest on. We were surprised to see how big the mining operation is, considering how small the township is. The immediate view is of the Cornwall Pit (now closed and flooded),but beyond it can be seen the...

nice to see an actual working mine, rather than one that was working and has now ceased. Viewing platform is easily accessible by foot and has good information on the types of ore mined and its uses.

It's 350 metres deep and leads to an underground mine reaching to a near kilometer below the earth's surface. From the viewing platform on the northern rim of the massive pit you can view fascinating geological structures. What seems to be a metres wide ribbon of pure white rock splits the southern wall of grey ... and looking to the... More

If your in Greenbushes make sure you don't miss the mine lookout. An easy walk to the lookout with plenty of information available at the top.

I spent some time doing some walks in Greenbushes (the Mining Heritage Walk goes right past here), and even though I only spent a short time at the Mine Lookout, it's well worth a quick stop if you are in the area. From the parking area it's a short walk up the hill to the lookout, which is a massive... More

There is a great lookout platform looking into the Tin mine but it appears the main action has moved further afield. Informative signage Could have more details of extracting the main minerals from the ore like they do in Kalgoorlie

Popped in on an afternoon of sightseeing. Luckily for me the gate was still open so i could wander up the walkway. Number 1 thing going for it- it was blissfully cool and breezy on a hot day. Number 2- there was a very informative education board display there. Fascinating.

We visited the mine lookout as part of the approx 3k mining heritage walk. Would absolutely recommend the walk through lovely bushland, with great native plants and animals, and interesting mining relics. Was nice and easy to follow, and fairly flat and easy walking most of the way around. The lookout itself was a bit of a surprise. Who knew... More

Very nice lookout with parking 3 minutes walk. Worth if you are in town after visiting the museum. Interesting history of town.

This mine is a must for all tourists passing through the SouthWest. Located just off the main highway and an easy climb to the top, offers views of the open cut mine. Very informative notice boards and benches for a sit down.
