At Central Deborah Gold Mine you have the unique opportunity to descend underground and explore a real gold mine that operated during the gold rush boom.

The passion, enthusiasm and knowledge of the tour guides is contagious and you can't help but become enthralled by the beauty and lure of gold as you are guided through the honeycomb of hidden underground tunnels where 929 kilograms of gold was unearthed.

With only the light on your cap to light the way, the silence of being far below the hustle and bustle of the city and the cool underground temperature helps you imagine what conditions as a miner were really like during the harsh gold rush era.

Gold fever strikes visitors on the famous Mine Experience Tour (61 metres underground), the exciting Underground Adventure Tour (85 metres underground) and Australia’s deepest underground mine tour, Nine Levels of Darkness (228 metres underground).

Bookings are essential, please contact Central Deborah Gold Mine for further information.

Central Deborah Gold Mine was inducted into the Victorian Tourism Awards Hall of Fame after being awarded Victoria's Heritage and Cultural Tourism Attraction of the Year in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
