Coal Mines Tour

Cultural and Theme Tours

Tucked away in a corner of the Tasman Peninsula is the little known settlement known as the Coal Mines. This place of industry played a significant part in the history of crime and punishment during the convict era. Explore the site where the ‘worst of the worst’ toiled away in unstable and suffocating mine shafts and did time in unique and cruel solitary confinement. Hear the stories behind the ruins, the people and the infamous underground cells that you may otherwise miss as you are guided through this World Heritage Site.
Please note this tour operates outdoors in a remote location with limited services with no food or retail outlets. A reasonable level of fitness is required.
This exclusive tour is only available for a limited time. Bookings are essential.
