I didn't really know what to expect from this visit but it was very interesting, informative and entertaining. Our guide, who covered the history of gold mining, and gave a demonstration of smelting gold, was very funny and informative. The sight of the 1 tonne gold coin is well, phenomenal.

Very informative tour, interesting to see and hear about the mining industry from the past. Highlight was probably seeing the gold being melted down and made into gold bullion

We went to the Perth mint with our kids and went on the tour and gold pour. Both were good value with an entertaining tour guide and an interesting gold pour. We could book on the spot but it was first thing and some tours (in school holidays) seemed to be booked out. The people in the cafe were rude... More

Take the full tour with scones served afterwards. The tour is informative, the guide is really good and isn't too long. Make time to look at the shop, so great original items and the staff are friendly. My only criticism, is the receptionist in the front door, although efficient was a little cold and in different. An occasional smile would... More

This tour was recommended to us whilst on vacation in Perth from the UK. It was extremely interesting from start to finish with some nice shops selling in some cases very expensive jewellery. Well worth a visit.

This is a very informative visit and the gold pour was great. There is a lot to see in the shop, the museum and the big gold nugget which you can try to pick up if you can. Kids loved it.
