Joadja was a kerosene shale mining town which operated from 1878 to 1911 under the management of The Australian Kerosene Oil and Mineral Co.

After the collapse of the industry, the town was sold in 1911 and it's people left the valley. Today, the property is open for visitors wanting to explore this bygone era and the natural beauty of this hauntingly magical place.

The new Joadja Distillery pays homage to the thosands of Scottish miners and their families who made the journey to this country all those years ago. 

Tours of the Joadja Historic Site run for approximately 90 minutes and are conducted using their purpose-built people movers. There will be opportunities for you to get off the people mover and walk around the ruins, take photos, etc. After the tour of the ruins, you can also do the Joadja Distillery Tour which includes tastings.
