“Unique”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

Was surprised to find this enormous open cast mine in the middle of a small quaint town. It's not visible from anywhere in town but when you walk up this walkway it surprises you.

“A great tour! Very interesting.”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

Very informative, the older kids and adults enjoyed learning about mining in NZ. Our 6 year old wasn't that interested all that much in the facts but she wasn't complaining and said she liked it.

“Do the spectacular Martha Mine Pit Rim walk”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

This is an easy walk to do and the view is spectacular. The walk starts at the Information Centre in Waihi. There are plenty of informative boards as you progress. The walk is a fabulous way to watch, learn and comprehend. Spend time downstairs at the Waihi Visitor Centre. This is where you will find a magnificent exhibition about the Martha Gold Mine. Martha Mine is a huge hole in the ground and just makes you think and wonder about the things we do.

“Big!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

I searched this on google maps and it looked huge but seeing it is just mind blowing. Its a very large hole. it is like looking down to a sandpit full of tonka toys.
