Lovely little walk through the old goldmines, lots of cave wildlife weta and glowworms. Great lookout point at the top.

A different kind of walk, eg loop through a 500m long tunnel.

Nice place, and the walk through the cave is really nice, however it needs more information about the different tracks available. (Don't forget to bring a light.)

Short walk with not too many remnants of the gold mining days. Nice enough bush walk all the same, good wide level paths.

Fantastic, easy walk . We had 3 small children with us (5 and under) and it was perfect for them (as well as a great adventure). Didn't take anywhere near the 20 mins shown on the signpost. It would be great if more historic information was provided on signposts as it really is a very interesting place.

Two hour walk with a lot of things to see, you need a torch - it is like an adventure.
