We decided for something a bit different to take the trip into the national park and go visit the Millwood mine. The first thing is that the park is mostly all dirt track roads. They weren't the worst dirt tracks we had driven on during our SA trip but it was a long drive in to were the mine is.
The day we arrived there was a bike event on so the area was pretty busy. This was both good and bad, it was good as it meant the cafe was open but it also meant that we couldn't drive up to where the mine sites were, instead we had to walk up, which was ok but we didn't feel too happy doing this as we had to watch out for the cyclists as well. Just to note that we weren't made aware that this bike event was on when we entered the park .
The mine area itself was quite interesting and the small museum had a number of interesting articles and items. It was pretty cool seeing the old street signs but they were quite well hidden in places. I also feel like there was probably a bit more to see but due to the bike event no one seemed able to inform us of where to go and it didn't seem like they were prepared for any visitors that day.
The cafe was nice and served homemade treats.
Overall there is certainly points of interesting and i'm glad we went there, i just feel that for the long drive in it may not have been fully worth it.
