A quaint quiet spot to stop off and wander around an historical mine, the scene of New Zealand's most tragic mining disaster. Great to see the old brickworks from the local area.

Very interesting site with lots of history and very good signage showing how hard it was to live in those days. Well worth the stop and walk around.

Great time spent here by my family, you definitely got the idea of the disaster that occurred here. So much of it still preserved to show the devastation. Walked 1/4 of the way across the suspension bridge and turned back haha - didn't feel safe....More
