The Mint - Friday

At the mint we heard about the two men who's statues are out the front who first discovered gold in WA and started this states first minerals boom. It was amazing to hear about the many people who arrived in the colony and then discovered they had to walk 600km's to Kalgoorlie.

It was great to see the gold pour but they wouldn't let us take photos inside. Abraham's holding a plastic model of the biggest gold chunk ever discovered.
Afterwards we went out to lunch at a Chinese restaurant.
