Brimming with history

Tucked away just outside Greymouth on the wild West Coast is a small historic establishment called Taylorville. This quaint town hosts an iconic piece of New Zealand history – Brunner Mine Site. Overgrown and overflowing with New Zealand's industrial history - this interesting activity is a must-see. 

Dotted with interpretative panels of photographs, maps and stories, walk through this forgotten work site and learn about yesteryear mining persuits.
