Dorothea Mackellar’s My Country is one of Australia’s most widely recited and beloved poems. Reflective of the author’s affection for the Australian landscape, the second stanza is one of the most recognised and celebrated pieces of Australian poetry ever written.

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror –
The wide brown land for me!

[Mackellar, Dorothea 1907 – 1908, My Country (Ref: A1605001).
State Library of NSW.]

The Perth Mint is inviting hopeless romantics to visit its Gold Exhibition this Valentine’s Day to watch molten gold transform into a solid gold heart!

Starry-eyed lovers can witness this amazing spectacle in the Mint’s original 1899 Melting House, where two hundred ounces of pure gold will be heated to the searing temperature of 1,200 degrees Celsius, before being hand-poured into a graphite mould in which the molten metal will cool to form a gleaming heart of gold.

This special love-themed gold pour will be performed at The Perth Mint on Sunday 14 February only, on the hour from 10am to 4pm.

Valentine visitors can also book a Devonshire Tea to enjoy in the Mint’s inner courtyard café which is surrounded by turn of the century buildings.

To further express our devotion on this popular day, The Perth Mint is giving each visitor the chance to win one of six silver hearts medallions on which they can engrave a message of love. At the end of each gold pour, the demonstrator will simply pick a row number from the audience at random to determine the winner! Best of luck!

Admissions are priced at $19 per adult, $8 per child (aged 4 to 15 years), with concessions also available.

The Perth Mint is located at 310 Hay Street (cnr Hill Street), within walking distance of the CBD, and is accessible via the free Red CAT bus route (Stop No. R06).

For enquiries and bookings, telephone 9421 7223 or visit perthmint.com.au/visit
