Visit Australia's largest operating gold mine and Australia's oldest operating mint.
Experience the magic, allure and wonder of gold with a day trip to a working gold mine then on to the splendour of The Perth Mint.
The Mine to Mint day tour will take you on a journey to a working gold mine – the Newmont Boddington Gold Mine, located just 130km from Perth, and the only working mine of this scale so close to Perth. Kitted out in ‘high vis’ safety gear, you will visit the rim of the mine’s giant South Pit to see huge haul trucks transporting their loads and travel through the plant where ore is crushed and copper and gold separated.
After lunch and gold panning in the picturesque Boddington town site, your journey continues to The Perth Mint where Western Australia’s golden history comes to life.
At The Perth Mint, you will see the Guinness World Records Australian Kangaroo One Tonne Gold Coin and the second largest natural nugget in existence. Witness the wonder of a traditional gold pour in our original melting house, touch gold bullion worth more than $500,000 and marvel at precious metal coins and medallions being minted before your eyes.
Morning tea and lunch included. More information can be found here.
