A mine blast reverberates through a softly lit tunnel, and radio chatter and truck noises add atmosphere as you descend into the Discovery Decline.
Take a journey underground through a multi media display featuring people who work in underground mines and the equipment they use.
This modern replica adds a “wow” factor as you learn about Greenbushes – Western Australia’s oldest gazetted minerals field and the longest continuously mined field in the State.
Try on miners’ gear, pore over old maps, find out about the discovery of tin in 1886 and the town’s development as a producer of the strategic minerals tantalum and lithium.
Find the large hollow tree and enter the Discovery Forest, a virtual indoor forest which highlights forest ecology, indigenous culture, plantation industries, timber milling and timber products.
Get dried in our kiln or take a load of logs to the mill in our simulated truck. See animals and plants in the Land Dome and play our interactive games.
Take an amble along the main street on the Heritage Amble where you can explore the history of the town from the 1880s to the 1940s.
Go bush on one of our three forest walk trails beginning and ending at the heritage park opposite the centre. Visit the Public Mine Lookout or take a picnic to the Greenbushes Pool and Boardwalk on Spring Gully Road.
