Today we left the warmth of Longford and headed out to Beaconsfield. Here we checked out the mining museum, there are plenty to see if your into history. The museum is filled with history of the mining site but also has lots of interactive displays with industrial equipment and other information about life in the area.
Having a section where manikins were setup hiding in and around the ruins was a startling experience even when u had been warned they were there.
It was rather fascinating.
Our ticket into the museum was a tag that we had to leave place on the board before climbing the tower. It was a great way to spend the afternoon.
We stayed in the area for lunch and then high tailed it to Devonport as we knew the weather was going to cave in on us.
Which it did, and we got absolutely soaked :/
Managed to find shelter while waiting to board the boat which was a little relief. It was good that it stopped raining when we had to line up to get on, though our gear was still wet not having to endure sitting in the rain was well welcomed.
