Take a journey to a working gold mine then on to the splendor of The Perth Mint. Located just 130km from Perth, the Newmont Boddington Gold Mine is a confortable day trip and the only working mine of this scale so close to Perth, Western Australia's Capital City. Kitted out in 'high vis' safety gear, you will visit the rim of the giant South Pit at Newmont's Boddington Gold Mine to see huge haul trucks transporting their loads and travel through the plant where ore is crushed and copper and gold are separated. After lunch and gold panning in the picturesque Boddington town site, your journey continues to The Perth Mint where Western Australia's golden history comes to life. Watch molten gold being poured to form a gleaming gold bar, see the largest gold coin in the world and the second biggest natural nugget in existence. Then view precious coins and medallions being minted, handle a real gold bar and experience the spectacular jewelry at The Perth Mint Shop.
