Excellent ★★★★★

Glad we turned around. Cool self guided walk around the old miners huts and shafts then met up with Bruce who showed us lots of interesting stuff and how to pan for gold. We managed to find 3 pieces to take home. Well priced at $25 each.

Excellent mining museum. ★★★★★

Thoroughly enjoyable museum , about the once flourishing local gold mining industry Very informative tour , lots of practical demonstrations , and the chance to pan for gold ! Easy to get to , on main Queenstown road a few minutes from Cromwell.

Don’t miss going here ★★★★★

Excellent place to visit to be made aware of the history of gold mining in New Zealand . The talk, walk, gold panning and seeing the ore crusher in action made the visit so enjoyable. Thanks to Glenise for sharing her knowledge. Make sure you take the time to do the long walk around the site.

Interesting visit! ★★★★

We popped past on the way from Queenstown to Dunedin. A good and informative way to spend a few hours. You get to cross a bridge over a beautiful blue river. We did the guided tour to learn about the history of gold mining in the area. The tour of the machinery was really interesting too. Gold panning was fun! The heat made the experience even more authentic
Wish we had allocated more time to walk around the entire place as what we could see from the distance looked so interesting! Unfortunately with 20 month old in tow, we reluctantly had to leave although he did enjoy looking at the machinery.

An excellent excursion ★★★★★

This was a fantastic excursion for adults and children. The guide gave us information about the mine and how it came to be and he was very entertaining and informative. We had teenagers with us and they were absolutely enthralled by all this information. He showed us the primitive yet incredible mining machinery that used technology that was amazingly inventive for those days. Then came the panning which was great fun. The kids were sure they were going to find something huge but, alas, these are nowhere to be found! We were there for nearly 2 hours which was sufficient. The prices were good, costing $25 NZ for adults and $10 NZ for children. We were there in December (Summer) but we’re very pleased we’d taken warm clothes as the wind made it fairly cold. The staff were very pleasant and there is a restaurant for younto get a coffee, a drink or something to eat.


Wonderful ★★★★★

Great Fun ★★★★★

Gold panning and Chinese huts ★★★★


★★★★★ What a great time my daughter literally struck gold and I’ve never seen her smile so hard doing the gold panning … great experience we will never forget

★★★★★ Staff were friendly, really awesome machinery, great little walk, didn’t have time for the longer walk but the shorter walk was cool anyway, we were too busy trying to pan. But however it’s was a great little stop. Definitely worth a look.

★★★★★ Interesting place to visit. Good shop too.

★★★★★ So much to love! Panning for gold, NZ Historical site, replica Chinese miners village, exploring old mining sites. Really enjoy visiting
