Stawell Gold Mine

Stawell Gold Mine is a popular historic attraction in the Grampians and has been ever since the gold mining boom that rocked the town in the late 19th century.

The Stawell Gold Mine has produced over 2.7 million ounces of gold between 1853 and 1926. Today, the gold mine is the largest in Victoria.

Stawell Gold Mine, Address, Victoria Australia

To experience the splendid view that Stawell Gold Mine offers, walk along Reefs Road as it runs parallel to the mine’s entry and stretches for over a kilometre, allowing visitors to view the mine from a number of viewpoints. At the observatory area, visitors can listen to some audio commentary which tells the story of this very profitable mine and its mining history- both past and present.

This experience not only gives visitors a glimpse into what the thriving town of Stawell was like during the gold mining boom, but it is also an eye-opening experience, as gold mining attractions in Victoria are now quite rare.

On request, certain locations of Stawell Gold Mine are accessible on observation tours, but the prior arrangement must be made with the administration of the mine.

This is a great way to pass a couple of hours on your next visit to Stawell as you take in the views of the mountainous countryside.
