Item Description

This an exclusive opportunity to go on a underground four-wheel-drive tour of Castlemaine Goldfields? Ballarat Gold Mine for 4 people. Your tour will travel underground from Mount Clear, beneath Sovereign Hill, under the Llanberris Reserve and under the LT Fraser Reserve/Skate Park on Main Road, and all the way to Ballarat East and Bakery Hill. You will reach depths of approx. 750m below the surface (about 320m below sea level). You will receive all the required safety gear as well as an induction to prepare you for your trip underground.

The tour will be two to three hours in duration in a four-wheel-drive vehicle along with a bit of walking around underground.

You will need to be not (overly) claustrophobic and able to walk on rough, muddy and rocky ground in low-light conditions.

Your tour will be held at a date and time that is agreeable to both you and the Ballarat Gold Mine. 

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for those with a sense of adventure.
