Waihi Gold Mine Tours

Across the street from the renowned Cornish Pumphouse, the all-new Gold Discovery Centre welcomes its first guests with its remarkable facade. Open the doors and you’ll find yourself surrounded by fun, interactive activities. You’ll be pushing hard against an air-leg drill that will shake your bones, just like an actual drill. You’ll lean on a plunger to activate a replicated explosion down the gold mine, then for a change of pace you might attempt to triumph against the shifty dealer at a game of Two-up. You’ll wonder at the complex detail in the dynamic models, and then press the controls to see what unpredictable thing will happen. Open windows into history and discover how it was growing up in a gold town, then crank the handle to find out the power of horses, steam and electricity.
