  • We had such a fantastic day here. There is so much history, and my youngest was very excited to find gold! We thought we would have some fun and get some old time photos done. I know the fires burnt.....  more »
  • Easy to get to, car park was small though so wouldn’t be idea on a busy day. Staff were friendly, fun for kids. Very overpriced though  more »
  • One adult and two small children... nice enough and interesting set up. Unfortunately the low review is due to the interaction we had with the lady operating the photography store. We walked in to see the prices as we wanted to purchase some, and she was very rude, told us we needed to leave as she was assisting other customers...then closed the door behind us and put up a sign..... the responsibility is on her to have the door closed and sign up, not ours. This is the age of business accountability through online reviews, and based on your poor service and rudeness you get a low rank from us, and advisory to others. Fix your performance.
  • Kids had a blast whilst learning about the gold rush. Panning for gold is a must!! Mogo has the purest gold in the world
