“Great tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

I really enjoyed this guided tour that has lasted at least 50 minutes:after walking through a gold mine tunnel wearing a helmet(bring adequate shoes because it can be a little muddy),I discovered an operational 19th century stamper battery and did a self-guided tour to explore the photographic museum,view a video presentation and steam-powered machines.

Thanks to the manager or the guide? who is a fount of knowledge and has a real sense of humour,I discovered a lot of topics about NZ mining history,geology and mineralogy,formation of gold commonly associated with silver,its uses....and French history!!

Highly recommended!
admission adults $15children ,under 13 $5
