Silverton – Historic Day Dream Mine

Don a miner’s helmet and enjoy both a surface and underground mine tour at this unique, remote outback mine. While this tour is not for the faint-hearted, the adventure is worth the effort, exploring deep underground and getting a true insight into a miner’s life from yesteryear.  Relax with afternoon tea of scones and a cuppa before enjoying an outback dinner at the character-filled Silverton Hotel (med-high intensity).
