Come out and hear the stories of the early mining history of this region, from the earliest ironworks to the spread of mining to the neighbouring settlements. Hear the stories of the dirty and dangerous work for the miners, many newly arrived from England and Europe. These mining settlements gave rise to the area communities that we know and cherish today.

Are your ancestor's miners from the area? We want to hear from you!
