Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It’s a nice little stop when going by Greymouth which ever direction you’re travelling in. It’s free and very interesting. Was pleasantly surprised. Lots of information into the mining. Nice and easy walk around.

Really interesting visit. Sign boards detail the disaster really well. Good paths to get the oldies around on. The information about how the coke kilns worked was great as you are standing right next to them. Either park over the bridge and walk or you can park next to the memorial

As New Zealanders we never knew about this mining site disaster. It was really well presented and we gained knowledge we did not previously have of this area.

cool walk and very informative. Although when I and my family went part of the track was blocked off because of information due to large amounts of rain but we just went around and it was still great, the brick ovens were very cool and the roofing on top of them was nice to shelter us from the rain for a bit. The walk was a bit hard for my disabled body but was alright

Very thankful manual labor has progressed from how it was then. The men and women of that time worked so hard to make life work.

Interesting and a great (free) thing to do while touring the West Coast. Would recommend for those interested in history.

Definitely worth visiting. You can see lots of equipment they would of used back then as it's plotted around the walk. It's a free walk. We did the short walk since it was a very cold day but there are a few options. I love how preserved it is and lots of information on the disaster and say of life.

Interesting historic site which has been well maintained and is a good stopping off place when driving from Nelson to the West Coast.

Plenty to interest all ages.

Lots of information points, interesting remains of the mine site, lots of parking, and toilets. We strolled around as a couple, but it's fun with pathways for the kiddies to burn off some energy too.
