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.


POSITION VACANT - Regional Study Hub Manager


The West Coast may be Tasmania’s wild frontier – but even out here, curious and studious minds can still be connected to all the world’s information.

This will be more true than ever with the establishment of the West Coast Regional Study Hub – a facility for all post-secondary learners of the West Coast, with equipped high-speed internet connection, computer and video conference facilities, quiet study areas, teaching/tutorial spaces, and collaborative breakout spaces.

But the Study Hub will need a team to run it… and that team will need a leader. Could that leader be you?

 You must be a proven business planner and project manager, a fantastic communicator, an analytical thinker, and an expert in running happy and healthy workplaces. Oh, and you’ll need a valid driver’s license. It’d help if you have a solid understanding of the West Coast, and a good grasp on the higher education system.

It’s more than a job, of course – working on the West Coast means living in our vibrant, wild, evolving community. 

If you’re ready to take a step outside your comfort zone and join the West Coast Heritage Centre team as the Regional Study Hub Manager, check out the Position Description here  Regional Study Hub - PD Feb 2019
