Town and Mine tour of Weipa 15/6/21
by: Joan Wildey

Our group of four did this tour yesterday with Hardyโ€™s.

It was absolutely brilliant, so informative! Hardy's would have to be THE BEST tour operator I have had the opportunity of travelling with.

Nothing was a problem and he went out of his way to show us everything we could possibly see in the three and a half hours we were travelling with him.

I would give this tour a 20 out of 10.

Awesome tour
by: S Smith

Totally awesome tour, Hardus provided a really engaging tour with a very insightful introduction to Weipa the town, how it functions and why it developed as it is, how its different to a non mining town, its ecology, and then a fantastic look at Rio Tinto's amazing mine, loved seeing all the really big stuff ๐Ÿ˜

huge thank you to Rio Tinto for enabling this as it is getting hard to see any of these fantastic projects now ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ loved the tour, thank you
