Wonthaggi State Coal Mine Interpretive Trail

In 1910, the State Coal Mine began operations in Victoria and the South Gippsland township of Wonthaggi began it’s heartbeat of industry and progression, to support the mine workers and their families. Mining operations have long since ceased, but the State Coal Mine Historic Reserve remains.

Interpretive by Design were engaged by the Wonthaggi and District Historical Society to create a post and panel trail to inform visitors of this very important part of Wonthaggi’s history.  Snapshots of information and images which “spoke a thousand words”  conveys  this historical period through a simple, but very effective method of signage.
