The West Coast Heritage Centre has thousands of stories to tell.

Step back in time and get an insight into what life was like back in the mining boom days. Stroll down the main street of what was once known as "Silver City". With much of the original architecture still standing, the main street is like a museum in itself. 

The museums, galleries and the Zeehan School of Mines and Metallurgy are just a few of the top haunts to explore. The historic Gaiety Theatre is always on show, and it’s hard to look away from the world-class mineral collection that lights up the rock shop. There’s a Freemasons display and a pioneer women's gallery that both speak volumes.
