Arrived for opening.... went on the train, panned for gold and saw all the places... loads of interesting history and learnt things which was a bonus.
went to have a photo and lunch but could not find staff and the photo place was not available.
three hours later we emerged.... still could have spent more time reading and exploring but we were hungry.

Good fun afternoon. A bit of a ghost town but fun nevertheless. Staff were friendly and the train ride was cool.

Iconic kiwi activity with hilarious local staff. Very well kept grounds with lots of interesting history = steam train is a must do! Well priced cafe with generous portions.

Nice and old, maybe less money would make it more attractive.

Nice to see the historic buildings and replicas. Not well maintained though.

Very lovely place, it is a rebuild of a little town during the gold rush. They even have an old train and you can search for gold (an extra $7).

Good experience with the steam loco (train) and the old village but a little bit expensive.
