History comes alive at Bendigo’s award winning Central Deborah Gold Mine.

Don a hard hat and miner’s lamp, descend 61 metres beneath the surface of Bendigo and walk in the footsteps of past miners!

Become enthralled by Bendigo’s golden past as you are guided through the honeycomb of hidden underground tunnels with one of our friendly and knowledgeable guides on a Mine Experience Tour.
