Great views but we could enter in only one mine. Others are closed.
Worth the effort.
It was an exciting walk through mines and tunnels. We had so much fun there, even if it was raining.
A lovely walk along the gorge and up to the old mines.

Beautiful and interesting walk. Not too long and not exhausting. A must do!
Amazing scenery mixed with mining history. Take a head torch, you can explore deep into the mines in the pitch black.
The track was pretty boring for us - better for cyclists.
Beautiful nature, it seems like you are watching Indiana Jones.
Beautiful walks and dramatic gorge with gold mining tunnels and underground tunnels. Signs and direction very informative and easy to navigate. Unspoilt and no recent tourism development which was a bonus.

Stunning landscape, interesting history, easy walks - made a great day for us. We wanted to do the 2.5 hours tunnel loop only and ended up walking the whole territory. Bring a torch if you dare to experience the dark tunnels.
Interesting walk on the old mines path. Bring the flashlight and enjoy the tunnels.
Interesting for history, mines and nature. You can see glowworms in the old mines. Nice two hour walk.
Stunning walks in between the cliffs, while visiting old gold mines and their associated remains. With cool hanging bridges.
A beautiful easy walk in the gorge, remains of historical goldmines.

Lovely river all the way and interesting goldmine relics walk through tunnel and nice restaurant at the end.
A little walk for all the family, you need to have a light for a walk in the mine.
You can visit old gold mines, bring your torch.

Many parts of the track were closed without giving information at the car park - you have to find out while walking.
Great walks around old disused goldmines where you can explore tunnels (torch advsied!) and lots of waterfalls/rivers etc.

Walks all along the river, well laid out and popular.
Free walk in, beautiful valley, included some great fun old tunnel section. Interesting history too and very well maintained.
An interesting and historical walk.
Historic track, highly recomended, excellent views over the gorge.
Good walk, interesting historic sites, great bridge over the rapids. Fab Waikino station cafe at the end. Downside - one way or duplicated, some roadside noise.
