West Coast Heritage Centre

Main Street, Zeehan

The Tasmanian West was largely uninhabited until tin was discovered at Mount Bischoff in 1871. This led a bevy of prospectors to the area, and in 1872 more tin was discovered near Mount Zeehan. This mining boom led to the formation of Zeehan.

The West Coast Heritage Centre documents the area’s mining history, from the boom to the bust. Featuring photographs, mineral collections and old mining equipment.

It is the best way to enhance your visit to the West Coast.
