State Coal Mine


The State Coal Mine precinct in Wonthaggi has two open-space areas capable of hosting events. The larger of the two is in the north-eastern corner and is a flat grassy lawn with a gently sloping hill at the
southern end.

Visitors can enjoy lunch or light refreshments in the café or make use of the sheltered picnic area and free
barbecues. There are timber picnic tables with bench seating at the barbecue area.

About 60 vehicles can park between the main tourism centre and ‘The Shed’ which is a small theatre. This car park has marked disabled parking spaces. Overflow parking is available along State Coalmine Access

The large lawn is lit up at night by two high powered lights attached to nearby buildings. The second area has no lighting. The areas outlined here have yet to be used for any major events.

The State Coal Mine is the only historic coal mine experience in the Southern Hemisphere and offers a journey back in time to discover what life working in a coal mine was like in the 1900s. Visitors can venture underground through the dark network of tunnels to get handson at the coal face and learn
how Victoria’s hard-working men extracted the black gold.

Wonthaggi Recreation Reserve


The largest multi-purpose outdoor venue in the region has two football/cricket grounds (one with a turf wicket, the main ground with a synthetic pitch), seven synthetic surface netball courts and a separate open area on the east side of the Rec Reserve precinct next to the skate park.

The No.1 oval has four light towers that produce 150LUX. The No.2 oval has two light towers which produce enough light for training purposes. Night matches can be held at the netball complex thanks to eight light towers over the seven courts.

The Wonthaggi Power social rooms on the main oval have a bar and small kitchen. Both the main oval and netball facility have a small kiosk.

The change rooms and pavilions on the football/cricket grounds offer shade. There are shade structures at the ends of most of the netball courts. There are 60 marked car spaces next to the netball courts along Korumburra Road. Cars can park around the boundary of both ovals which could hold a total of approximately 300 cars.

The near new netball facility was opened in April 2017. It is the only facility in the Bass Coast region that has more than two courts. It is used by both the Wonthaggi & District Netball Association and the Wonthaggi Power Football Netball Club. The football grounds are the home of the Wonthaggi Power who play in the Gippsland League. During cricket season the grounds are used by the Wonthaggi Miners Cricket Club.
