This is a small town, with mining history. The lunch was good. Light with salads. Then you walk to the visitors center and they have a mining tour and display . The guide was very interesting but overall I didn't really enjoy it. Sorry

This Tourist Information Center is very well organized. You can learn a lot about the history of this former mining town. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The provided variety of gifts and postcards is lovely and affordable.

Thank you for visiting, we are so very lucky to have the displays that we do. There's certainly plenty of history to read up on here at the Reefton I-SITE Visitor Information Centre.
