Best thing I did in Perth. Greg the guide was outstanding, hilarious and clearly loves his job! Absolutely the best value for money attraction I have ever been to! Loved all the coins and little bits inside. You can even make custom coins. They can print nearly anything you want on them. I would 100% recommend if you are in Perth to go on the tour and check it out.
Great place to learn about the origins of gold, the smelting process and history of the gold rush in Perth. The gold smelting demonstration was awesome. You can feel the heat the moment the melted gold is taken out. Our guide, Darren, was funny and kept us well entertained throughout the tour. A must stop over, and you get to see the largest gold coin in the world on display,and it is real!
