Very cozy and well organized. Staff is very friendly and stock is focus on locally made art craft. They also have accommodations that is very good value (good facilities and decent price). Mine tours depart from here. Totally recommended.

Very helpful and friendly staff. Got there late in the day and caravan park was full. You can stay in the carpark at the visitor centre for $10 a night. Great value.

Hello There, Yes we do have a requirement to have 4 passengers on the bus to conduct a Mine Tour. In the Low/Quiet season this does prove disappointing to some visitors. If you can call and make a booking we can put a message on...More

I love browsing here. There are beautiful gifts for all ages, you name it they have it. And the staff are so friendly. After each mine tour they provide a most welcome cuppa tea with jam and cream scones. Simply delicious!
