Well worth stopping if passing this way. The site has had a lot of work done recently to help remember the local industry and those who died in the disaster. Very well maintained walk with lots of the original buildings and machinery.

Very interesting. Lots of really detailed information about the mine, its origins, the engineers who built it and people who worked there. The detail about the disaster and the follow up on family law suits was very detailed.

Well signposted and good information boards. Records coal mining on the site from earliest digging to end of commercial mining. Exceptionally good record of Brunner Mine tragedy - sixty-five killed.

Self guided tour with information about the coal mining in the 1800s and detailed information about the mining disaster when 65 people died. Walk over restored bridge to information area.
