We travelled approx 30 mins from Queenstown to visit here. We had a great time on this hour tour. The guide was very knowledgable and explained a lot about the history of gold mining. The machinery was brought in from an old mine but was in working order and showed you how the gold was dredged. The Chinese village was recreated but also gave you a good idea of how it was. The gold panning was authentic and no gold was planted as at other goldpanning attractions. They could do this as there is a claim up river where they bring in the river soil. Two out of about 15 people got a gold fleck in their pans . One man got quite a big piece( worth about $60). Very well run and such a beautiful setting, got loads of great photos .
