Planning to visit the West Coast Heritage Centre?

Welcome to the West Coast Heritage Centre

 


 

From Mines and Memories to Trains and Treasures, the West Coast Heritage Centre offers a unique insight to the history of the West Coast of Tasmania and gives visitors a comprehensive experience and understanding of the heritage of the area, adding value and significance to your visit of this beautiful region of Tasmania.

The Centre incorporates four historic buildings- the Zeehan School of Mines and Metallurgy, Zeehan Post Office, Police Station-Court house, and the Gaiety Theatre-Grand Hotel, as well as 30 themed exhibition spaces. Explore the mining relics in our yard, experience what an underground mine was like in our Crocoite Cavern and see minerals and rocks of every size, shape and colour imaginable. You can climb aboard our historic trains, stroll through the region’s history in our photographic galleries, watch Edwardian films in the majestic Gaiety Theatre, act out a scene in our Court house or take a peek into the somewhat secretive society of Freemason’s in our Masonic Lodge display. You can even grab a souvenir in our gift shop.

Throwback Thursday!

A photograph showing Dundas, dated 1900. Dundas in the late 1800's and early 1900's had a population of up to 1000 people. However, by 1930 the population had shrunk significantly.
Today, Dundas is home to dense and beautiful wilderness, as well as the largest known deposit of the rare mineral Crocoite (lead chromate PbCrO4), the official Tasmanian Mineral Emblem, opposed to a township.

The Tasmanian Tree Frog grows up to 60mm in length, and lives on a diet mostly consisting of insects and various grass types. It is most commonly found at higher altitudes, and only on the western side of Tasmania!
