Look through the wide range of mining and farming relics and artefacts on display and learn about their significance to the region.
A visit to Paynes Find will put you at the start of the four day self-drive Miners Pathway to Mount Magnet. See abandoned mineshafts, explore exquisite native bushland on foot making use of one of many heritage walk trails and discover a variety of attractions at the many stops along the way.
It is worth noting that some of the tracks are only suitable for high clearance four-wheel drives. A useful guide for the tour can be collected from the tourist centre before setting off. Paynes Find is a four hour drive north of Perth.
