The #heartofgold Discovery Trail will take you back in time to the early gold rushes with augmented reality, remarkable audio stories, fun widgets, vivid videos, timeless photos and interactive games via the Heart of Gold app.

Elizabeth Quay will be a hub of free golden activity throughout this launch day, with trailblazers having the chance to win an array of prizes including real nuggets from the Ramelius Resources’ gold mine when they pan for gold with The Perth Mint or complete the trail on the day.

To mark the opening and the commencement of the trail, a replica of the famous Golden Eagle nugget will be unveiled, which is one of the largest specimens found in Western Australia.

Trailblazers will also receive a commemorative medallion on completion of the trail and during the month of October The Perth Mint is offering 25% off their Gold Exhibition.

Attractions will include a virtual scavenger hunt, face painting and #heartofgold social media competitions.

You will also be able to see inside a gold mine using virtual reality with Mining Education Australia.

The Heart of Gold App is free and will be available to download from 30 September 2017.
