Beaconsfield Mining & Heritage Centre

West St, Beaconsfield

Beaconsfield is most known for the mine rescue of 2006. A minor earthquake triggered rockfall, killing one miner and trapping two others, Brant Webb and Todd Russell. The whole world watched on as a dangerous rescue mission commenced. Both miners emerged six days later.

The Beaconsfield Mining & Heritage Centre tells the story of the mine rescue and several other exhibitions.
