The Coal Mines Historic Site is a great place to discover on foot. Learn the history of this place as you walk the paths and tracks and around the Site and read the stories of some of the people who lived and worked here.
Explore the settlement ruins which once included stone prisoners’ barracks and punishment cells, a chapel, bakehouse and store as well as quarters for the commanding officer, surgeon and soldiers.
