In the heart of the Victorian town of Cullinan is the world-renown diamond mine, where the largest gem-quality diamond, weighing in at 3 106ct, was unearthed in 1905. This diamond was given to King Edward VII on his 66th birthday. It was eventually cut into numerous gemstones, with the two largest (the Great Star of Africa and the Second Star of Africa) taking prime place in the Crown Jewels.

Take an interesting guided tour with us to see the giant hole where these diamond mining operations took place. Did you know that the Cullinan opencast mine is three-times larger than the Great Hole in Kimberley?

You’ll visit the diamond display room where you can see the replicas of the Cullinan Diamond, see the intricacies of diamond cutting, view a life-size mock-up of an underground tunnel; and visit the lookout point of the Big Hole. This is then followed up with a visit to the local jewellery shop.

It is also worth noting that this diamond mine still operates today.

We offer tour groups at any time of the day, with special rates for school groups and pensioners.
