Waihi Gold Mine Tours

Get inside the fence with Waihi Gold Mine Tours.
Although gold mining operations are ordinarily off-limits to the public, our experienced guides can take you inside the security fence to experience modern-day gold mining up close.


Waihi Gold Mine Tours offers visitors a unique opportunity to get to know Waihi's fascinating historic and current gold mining story.
You’ll be fitted out with safety gear as you board our 11 seater van, given a safety briefing then taken inside the security fence to view the mine operations from the best available vantage points. During the 1.5 hour tour you’ll be shown every stage of the process from ore extraction and crushing, through to final processing. There is plenty of massive mining equipment on show too.
We’ll relate colourful stories and answer any questions you may have about the modern operation and the gold mine's fascinating 100+ years of development.
