Description

A complete guide to the 22 sites that make up the Otago Goldfields Heritage Trail, a collection of important historic locations left behind by the early goldminers of Otago. The trail is managed by the Department of Conservation. Included in the guide are the once fabulously wealthy Gabriels Gully, the huge Earnscleugh dredge tailings near Alexandra, the memorial to the hundreds of miners who lost their lives in the great snowstorm of 1863, the stone cottage that took 20 years to build, the hill in St Bathans that was turned into a lake, the huge Bannockburn sluicings, a visit to parts of Old Cromwell that survived the Clyde Dam, a trip over the Skippers Road, a day in Macetown and a motorcycle journey over the Old Dunstan Road to the highest church in New Zealand, at remote Serpentine.show more
