The Goldfields ExperienceAdmission
$25 Adult
$10 Child (under 5’s Free)

At The Goldfields Mining centre visitors can explore the 25 hectors site, including the Chinese village and the many shafts and tunnels. A map is provided for the trails and many information boards along the way explain the various way the miners lived and worked this historic site.

Join our local guide for an informative talk about the Central Otago Goldrush. After learning about the history, your guide will show you the California sluice gun fired up to reveal its awesome water pressure used to dislodge gold bearing ore. Next, the stamper battery will be demonstrated how it was used to crush gold-bearing rock.

The tour will conclude with the guide demonstrating Gold panning, and you then have the chance to try your luck.
