|An exciting place to learn
Ride in a real mine transport!
Discover the world of coal and the coal miners' lives.
The Lithgow State Mine Heritage Park is not just another stuffy museum. Students are stimulated by the atmosphere of the old coal mine site, the site's wide open lawns and opportunities to interact with a range of weird and wonderful machines and artefacts.
We encourage children to touch and feel. Interactive experiences such as the mine transport ride and blacksmithing demonstration provide memorable experiences and stimulate further discovery
Our hands-on experience is supported by a range of online learning materials that can be used in the classroom, either before or after your tour.
