Visit the Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre and lose yourself in history. Visit the new mine yard where you can access the iconic headframe and miners cage. Play with treasures from the past and embark on a historical journey to a place where life is simple. At the Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre Tasmanian history is alive, and gold is under your feet. Our interpretive displays showcase the Mine Rescue of Brant Webb and Todd Russell. Many of the pieces in the centre are there for your enjoyment, displays to touch, buttons to push, levers to pull, tunnels to crawl through and animals to search for. Lose yourself in the nostalgia, chat with locals, experience the excitement and realities of the elusive hunt for gold. View the Beaconsfield mine in a different light in the 3D digitalised model, interactive screens and holograms to explore an underground mine from within the museum. The hologram image of Todd Russell greets you to explain the miners' lingo. The display has mastered the use of sight, sound and emotion and is not to be missed. Accolades include 2009, 2010 and 2011 - Winner of 'Best Heritage and Cultural Tourism' Award.
