Milparinka Mining Centre

Information

The Milparinka Heritage Precinct Albert Goldfields Mining Heritage Centre features story-line panels which simply explain the history of mining from nearby Mount Browne through to The Granites (as Tibooburra was formerly known.)

There are also interpretive maps, timelines and explanatory information about gold mining methodologies.

A short film illustrates the techniques by miners in the 1880s while interactive models of equipment are on display, along with a number of static displays of tools and other memorabilia from the region.

A touchscreen plays audio historic recordings of former Broken Hill mayor Wally Riddiford provides insight into the life of a young man born on the goldfields when it works!

Complimentary children’s’ worksheets are available from the Visitor Centre.
