So we called by with a little bit of Time to spare. This was well signed with great descriptions of the important history of this time.

A nice wander around on a good day. See how people use to live in some very hard times. They lived pretty tough lives and they restored the dwellings for next generations to get an insight into how people use to live and work. A nice walk through for families and well signposted with parking at the bottom with toilet facilities.

If you are going to go to Goldfields at Cromwell probably skip this if not worth a 1/2 hour walk around a few photo opportunities as part of your overall Arrowtown experience. Had heard a lot about it and was a little underwhelmed.

Real insight to how hard these settlers had it just to survive - these guys worked so hard and lived in so difficult conditions.

No entrance fee. Nice pleasant, easy walk. Information boards give a bit of idea on how the Chinese came to be in Arrowtown and how they lived during the goldrush period. The stream through the village is lovely.
