Greenbushes Mining Historical Park Information
Greenbushes Mining Historical Park provides an enlightening insight into the history of a fascinating mining town.

Take a look back over the town’s 130 year history which is encapsulated in the information boards around the park. Examine the old machinery used by the miners to excavate the tin and visit a mock mine shaft and replica prospector’s hut.
