“The best tour I have been on in a while. Better than all expectations. I will not give why away but if in Perth it’s a must. Our guide, Caroline was amazing and clearly loved what she was doing. Well done.”

Trip Advisor

“You really cannot visit Perth without visiting the Mint. Apart from the fact that the building is so beautiful, take the tour and be entertained and amazed, watching a gold bar being cast. You can also try to lift one of the gold bars too (it looks so easy but is so very heavy.”
