Visit the Historic Brunner Mine Site and explore a place of historical significance on the West Coast of New Zealand. The Brunner suspension footbridge spans the Grey River and links both sides of the mine site. This site was one of the country’s earliest industrial sites where coal was mined and coke, firebricks, and other products manufactured from the 1860s until the 1940s. Discover the area with a short walk around the historic coke ovens, brick factory, and remains of the tunnel entrances. Choose between multiple walking tracks, the Rakaitane track. Your guide will bring you across the bridge where you can enjoy the view of the Arnold River. Spend time down on the lakeshore before you drive around the village taking in the views of the stunning nature. Enjoy lunch at a restaurant and enjoy your meal while overlooking the views of Lake Brunner. Relax at a warm fire on cooler days...
