Abandoned underground coal mine just north of township of Acland in Queensland. Mine worked between 1913 and 1984, the longest continuously operating coal mine in Queensland. The site , now a 'museum' is 'in the way' of a new development proposed by New Hope Coal - the New Acland Mine. A spirited resistance is being put up by Glen Beutel, a retired geologist, and one of the last residents of Acland.
