Making it a day full of fun there will be market stalls and children's entertainment, including laser tag, jumping castle and petting farm.
Enjoy wine and cheese tasting while the Wonthaggi Citizens Band entertains. Stroll around above ground, taking in the old buildings, or venture below on an underground tour and see what working life was like for the miners. There will also be bus tours of the local historical sites.
