On the way back from Lake Brunner called into the Brunner Mine Site attraction. Heaps of local history here being one of the main coal mining sites for many of years. Well done to the local community that have brought this site back to life especially the amazing bridge that takes you over to the mine. The history story board gives great details of the mining operation here, if in the area this attraction is well worth seeing.

What an amazing site. Very well laid out walkway with lots of pictures and detailed information. Very easy to picture what it was like. Sad to think about the disaster. Interesting to see the ruins and leftovers of the industry. Feels like some true history happened here.

A fascinating look into the mining and brick-making history of the region. Some heart-wrenching stories of disaster and bravery coupled with remnants of the old works and mines. Toilets also available which is a good plus. Unmanned and totally free, open any time.

It was a lovely sunny day with a clear blue sky which made this walk more enjoyable. Very interesting place with lots of information about the Mine and Mr Brunner! We stopped on the far side first and then at the main part of the walk on the way back. This walk is a must if you are in the area.

Location is upriver from Greymouth and the walk beside the river, with some old artefacts lying around
