Explore grand buildings of Victorian days that are being restored to the way they were when Zeehan was a major mining town for gold, silver, lead, and tin.
A geologist’s mecca. With a population of 800 Zeehan is not quite a ghost town but its ghosts are everywhere along its main street. See and explore grandiose buildings of Victorian days that are being restored to when it was a major mining town for gold, silver, lead, and tin and a place for the piners and successful gold panners to spend their hard-earned money. The old Gaiety Theatre is slowly being returned to its original glory and is occasionally host to contemporary arts and culture events, and Zeehan’s West Coast Memorial Pioneers’ Museum is a showpiece and a mecca for anyone professionally interested in the technology and sociology of such a town.
