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.
