Learn how the Reefton folk helped New Zealand grow as a nation by experiencing the lives of the prospectors, miners and families who flocked to Reefton in the 1870 gold rush

Spend the morning...

We invite you to walk around Reeftons historic buildings and sites, stopping en route at The Bearded Miners for a cup of special Billy Tea. This leaves the afternoon to explore the Blacks Point Museum and have access to an extensive collection of memorabilia including a Stamper Battery used to crush rock and extract gold. 

Have a bite to eat…

So you're in Reefton ready to soak up the heritage – best not to do it on an empty stomach!  Follow your nose down the main street, and pop into one of Reeftons delicious cafes. 

Take a stroll...

Head on down to the Reefton Visitor Centre and wander through the Quartzopolis Mine exhibit. From there you can begin the Bottled Lighting Powerhouse Walk which takes you past the site of the old Powerhouse where NZ's first public supply of electricity was generated in 1888.
