Northern Star provides free site tours of KCGM, including the Super Pit, every third Sunday of the month to allow the community to better understand our operations.
The tours depart at 9am, 10am and 11am. Tickets are available from the Hannans North Tourist Mine, off the Goldfields Highway from 8.30am and are provided on a first come first served basis.
KCGM also provides site access to local tourism provider Kalgoorlie Tours and Charters which runs regular tours for visitors to our region. For bookings and enquiries contact (08) 9021 2211, firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.kalgoorlietours.com
During the tour, visitors view the Fimiston mining operations while learning about one of Australia’s largest and highest producing gold mines. The bus travels through the KCGM Black Street security gates past the mine site offices, Fimiston Mill, Workshop Yard and to an internal lookout on the South Eastern side of the Super Pit. At the internal lookout, passengers are able to get out of the bus and view the operation from a different perspective than that at the Super Pit Lookout.
Please note that it is a requirement that all passengers wear long sleeves, long pants and fully enclosed shoes for the tour. Children must be 4 years and over.
Hannans North Tourist Mine
After visiting the working mine, a visit to Hannans North Tourist Mine completes the experience with blast footage, a decommissioned truck and a scale model of the Fimiston Open Pit.
The rejuvenated Hannans North tourist attraction (formerly known as the Mining Hall of Fame) provides a great day out for locals, families, school groups, and visitors to Kalgoorlie-Boulder.
KCGM, as major sponsor, took on the role of caretaker of Hannans North Tourist Mine in 2012 after the Mining Hall of Fame closed. Since then, the team at Hannans North has been reopening the site in stages. The current phase of renovations sees a series of exhibits being refurbished and reopened.
