Denniston interpretation panels
The images and text from the interpretation panels at DOC sites on Denniston tell stories of the rich history associated with mining coal on the plateau, with an emphasis on the people who lived and worked there.
The panels evoke a strong sense of place, revealling the ebb and flow of life of this unique coal field community from its beginnings in 1878 through to the current day. They also tell of traditions born of coalmining culture that has created a distinctive sense of identity that still persists in the local West Coast community.
Originally designed to complement the walks and tracks on site at Denniston, the panels have been re-formated in this publication to enable history of this special place to be shared more widely.
