Mt Isa Mines no longer permits tours of its mine so in the early 2000s $15 million was tipped into setting up this tourist experience. Sure you are only 15m below ground and not 2,000 but that is in itself comforting. Always felt completely safe and the aspects of wearing orange overalls, a hard hat and light and having a coffee break in the "crib" room added to the realism without turning the exercise into a theme park. Everyone gets to try drilling and the event ends with a simulated explosion and exit from the tunnels on the back of a ute. Good value at $85. Groups of around 20.
Relaxed informative tour with a knowledgeable old miner.
