Dropped in here after Drivers Creek on 2nd January ( a bank holiday in New Zealand right?)........ The place was closed. We are assuming that if it's not open on one of the busiest days of the year it must no longer be operating.

The, still working, old water wheel is a bit of a novelty. Didn't stay for the guided tour. Might be interesting for those with a bit of an interest in the history of chasing gold.
