If you are in the Flinders Ranges, don’t miss this tour. The history of the mine, past and recent, is beautifully presented by enthusiastic local resident guides who have embraced the history wholeheartedly.


The mine tour was sensational! We highly recommend it for any age/character. The host was superb, Sheree thank you so so much- we had a wonderful time in Blinman; what a remarkable town. : ))

Hello there,
I am from the big Belair school camp 2014 in the Blinman mine.
I really enjoyed going through the mine and learning lot about history and I want to come again


Hi, my husband, daughter and I did the tour Sunday 8th June, 2014 and enjoyed it immensely…we were running a little late but Dean (the tour operator) stayed at the office right on the dot before leaving to start the tour, therefore we joined in…! Dean made the tour very enjoyable and his wealth of knowledge made it very interesting. We would recommend this tour to anyone that is travelling trough/to the Flinders, as you will not be disappointed…!


Took some friends, and their family from China, to Blinman to see this and we were all amazed. A great tour that gives a fascinating insight into the history of the mine and how it worked. Special thanks to Susan, our tour guide, who explained things so clearly that our interpreter had no trouble translating to our non-English speakers. Not to be missed and it’s so easy to get to. You don’t need a 4 wheel drive… it’s bitumen road all the way from Adelaide and close to Wilpena Pound and Rawnsley Park. I’ll certainly be coming back.

We spent 2 weeks in the Flinders Rangers in Oct/Nov and we visited The Blinman mine it was great I would highly recommend this tour and we had an amazing tour guide Susan she was so informative also funny thanks so much Susan. A must if you are visiting this area to hear and see what the early settlers had to go through is mind blowing. I know if we visit again we will do the tour again loved it. Great job Blinman you’re a lovely Town.


This tour was fantastic. The guide was really engaging, a great presenter who took you back in time as we went underground. Loved it.

A very interesting well presented tour which compares favorably with the best tours elsewhere in Australia. If you’re in the Flinders Ranges you shouldn’t miss it. Highlight of the trip so far. Haunting, stunningly powerful tale of our ancestors and their struggles.
