The famous image of the two men walking from the cage to the cheers and jubilation of the crowd and the massive media presence is burned into our memory.

Now, for the first time, the public will be able to access the mine yard and iconic headframe area adjacent to the Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre, which graced the cover of newspapers, magazines and websites around the world.

The Beaconsfield Mine & Heritage Centre has expanded into the former mine yard, doubling its footprint and will include the Hart Shaft & Winder house, miners’ change rooms (including the intriguing see-thru shower), drill sharpening workshop and the headframe over the now closed mine shaft.

Visiting schools receive guided tours or are welcome to self-guide with our website providing details on the educational components, teachers notes and other online resources. There are specific tailored documents under our education tab covering such topics as identity, relationships and culture, interactions with the environment, historical enquiry, roles, intentions and motives of people in the past and present, interconnections between systems, earth and space, physical and chemical sciences.
