Housing in the Gold Rush Days
At Hannans North it covers every aspect of how life was at the time, excellent information for young and old.
Tent life was a bit different in those days.
This is a large tyre
Compare the tyre to what is still a resonable size truck and you can appreciate just how large these trucks must be.
Hannans north historic tourist mine
Hannans North provides a look into the past, you can tour an underground mine, see gold pouring demonstrations, try gold panning, and see buildings and fittings from the past.
View of mines.
Looking the other way from the top of the head frame, notice the other working head frames in this shot.
The Ivanhoe Head Frame situated in Hannan Street , Kalgoorlie, this frame was originally at the Ivanhoe mine on the Golden Mile, you can go to the top for a great view.
The Super Pit in Kalgoorlie runs 24hrs per day and is expected to go to a depth of 500m , 2k wide and 4.2k long. ( this photo it was at a depth of 180m)
One of the largest gold rushes in AUSTRALIAN history
was set off by Paddy Hannan,Daniel Shea and Tom Flannagans discovery in 1893.
