Central Deborah Goldmine information
For a very deep experience, descend into this 500m-deep mine with a geologist. The mine has been worked on 17 levels, and about 1 tonne of gold has been removed. After donning hard hats and lights, you’re taken down the shaft to inspect the operations, complete with drilling demonstrations. There are five tours on weekdays and six on weekends and they last about 75 minutes.
Other tours include the 2½-hour Underground Adventure (adult/child/family $85/52.50/245) and, for the claustrophobes, a self-guided surface tour ($15/7.50/40).
