West Street, Beaconsfield TAS 7270

Visit Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre and lose yourself in history. Play with treasures from the past and embark on a historical journey to a place where life is simple. The time when machinery and hard labour were how 'things got done', where genuine smiles welcome you and strangers take time to chat. At the Beaconsfield Mine and Heritage Centre Tasmanian history is alive, and gold is under your feet... Our interpretive displays showcase the Mine Rescue of Brant Webb and Todd Russell. Many of the pieces in the centre are there for your enjoyment, displays to touch, buttons to push, leavers to pull, tunnels to crawl through and animals to search for. Lose yourself in the nostalgia, chat with locals, experience the excitement and realities of the elusive hunt for gold. View the Beaconsfield mine in a different light in the 3D digitalized model, interactive screens and holograms to explore the depths of an underground mine from within the museum. The hologram image of Todd Russell greets you to explain the miners' lingo. The display has mastered the use of sight, sound and emotion - this is one attraction not to be missed.

Anzac Day Dawn Service - Beaconsfield

Bernard Street, Beaconsfield TAS 7270
A Dawn Service will be held at Beaconsfield Cenotaph at RSL Park. Come together and reflect with the many people who every year attend dawn ceremonies of remembrance, gratitude and national pride for all our men and women who have fought and died in all wars. A Dawn Service will be held at the Beaconsfield Cenotaph to remember the ANZACs and other War veterans who fought for Australia. ANZAC was the name given to the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers who landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey early on the morning of 25 April 1915 during the First World War (1914-1918). As the light here grows and another ANZAC Day comes upon us, we turn to those in the shadows. We thank you. We will never forget you....
