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.

Well preserved remnants of important New Zealand history. Not far out of Greymouth and well worth a visit. Put aside an hour to wander around this well-signed heritage area.

Easy walk, lots of information about a once thriving mining settlement. Plenty to see.

Sad that a monument to NZ’s worst mining disaster in 1896 has to reference other losses of miners lives, as recent as Pike River in 2010.

Loved the easy to follow walkways and information boards that brought the site to life without overloading the visitor with details.

Stopped for an extended wander around the area. The history is great - the tragedy of mine deaths is very present and the memorial is quite moving. Found out a lot that I didn't know about mining and I think the place should be something taught in our schools. We have a lot of history in NZ that never makes it to the classroom

The presentation and the preservation of this mining disaster site were a significant memorial to the miners that lost their lives. I had not realised the enormity of the project. This is a place that Is well worth a visit.

We stopped by ,by accident and it was most enlightening. It is well kept and a credit to those who maintain it. We would recommend this to anyone visiting Greymouth. It has a memorial to the 3 big mining disasters on the coast,tragic.

A well maintained/developed place of NZ history. Reminders of the hard life of those of the past and mining of coal and coke. Suggest downloading the information sheet from doc beforehand which helps to guide your visit. I would suggest QR code’s at the site as a further upgrade so further information can be accessed.
