A very well preserved area in which you can walk and read about the dreadful accident that cost 65 men and boys their lives. Brunner remains NZ's worst work-place accident. Everything is beautifully and respectfully presented. The cemetery and memorial a couple of kms up the road is also well worth a visit.

Came here on a drizzly day with cloud hanging low which made us really sympathise with the people who lived and worked in this environment, not only the weather to contend with but all the chimneys spewing smoke, how awful. The memorial is very moving, eerie with the statue of a miner holding his lamp overlooking the valley and partrcularly with the tragedy at Pike river so recent and such similar results for both enquiries into the explosions. There is also an old brickworks and coke factory remains on site.

This was a sober reminder of the dangers miners faced with lack of health and safety but the history was fascinating

Not only is this a beautiful and easy walk, it was also very interesting. The information boards are well done and give good insight into the people who lived and worked here. The information about the mine disaster was particularly well presented and very touching.
