This is a must see for anyone visiting Greymouth New Zealand. Just outside of town with pretty views and plenty mining stories and facts from the area. Cross over the bridge for some 100+ year old buildings and facts and figures.

Visited on Saturday 12th May. It is well worth driving out to the Brunner Mine site at Taylorville. There is plenty still there to see with display boards giving a detailed history of the site. And it free to see.
