It was the largest quartz ore processing plant in Australasia and one of the biggest industrial sites in New Zealand in the early 1900’s. Then it was the country’s largest producer of gold -10 times more than the next largest battery.

The extensive heritage site is open every day to the public, Prominent Department of Conservation interpretation signage gives historical information at various locations. It is an ideal setting for family picnics, but please keep a watch on children for their safety as there are concrete foundations and danger spots.

Unfortunately the museum tour, while informative, was far too long - so much so that we ran out of time to take the underground tour of the kilns.
