Joadja Creek is the historical site of the Australian Kerosene Oil and Mineral Company Ltd. Please email in regards to private tours or "tag along tours". Cost is $20 per person and includes guided tours of the ruins (90 minutes on the people mover) and guided tour of the Distillery (20-30 minute tour and includes tastings). You can also do a fully catered private tour ($39/person) and this includes BBQ lunch, morning tea on arrival and tasings at the distillery.

Once home to an expansive shale mine and township during the late 19th century. Today, you can tour the settlement and see the ruins of a long lost village with its shale retorts, miners cottages, School of Arts, refinery area and cemetery. The mining technology that remains in the valley is of national heritage significance, being the only model of its type left in the world. Joadja Creek, which cuts through the valley, is a beautiful spring-fed waterway that never runs dry. It is the life source of the diverse flora and fauna that has reclaimed this once busy industrial site.
