Blinman Heritage Mine

Blinman is a town in the Flinders Ranges 485 km north of Adelaide City. It is a small town in the outback with only a population of just 18. Blinman Mine is named after Robert Blinman a shepherd who discovered the copper deposits way back in 1859. Today, it has been converted into a thriving tourist spot. The Blinman Heritage Mine tour had been set up since 2011 through the efforts of local volunteers. The Underground Experience features an in-depth guided tour about the history of Blinman Mine and the lives of the Cornish Miners back in that era. They have also equipped the well-preserved underground tunnels with lights and sounds system to complete the imaginative experience.

Although I have been to Blinman many times,the mine was never open.It is good to see that it is now open to the public on a regular basis.This area is well worth a visit and Blinman is a good staging post to visit the gorges nearby.
