We were driving by and found this place by chance.
It was a very nice surprise!
The guy who runs it was very informative and gave us a quick history about it and then we were left on our own to explore which was great and fun!
Bring cash and torch ($10/adult).

Stumbled across this gem driving along the highway. Well worth a stop and an explore. Bring cash ($10 per adult) and a torch - check out the wetas and glowworms when you're down there. Explore the abandoned mines, walk along the cart paths and explore a bit of gold mining history.
Fabulous for a driving break.

What a great way to spend at least 30 minutes or more if you amble around the well laid out track. Fascinating old mining relics to look at and beautiful bush. The man that greeted us has some interesting facts to tell. His great great grandfather owned the mine. And the entry fee of $10 (kids are free) is worth every cent.

Visited on a very wet West Coast day. Met one of the original family who shared a lot of information on the history of the gold mine, and the surrounding area. There is some interesting printed information available to read also. We spent about an hour there, the teens enjoyed it too, panned for some gold, but we didn’t venture too far into the tunnels! You can see what it would have been like for the miners, back in the day.
The drive from Hokitika is a decent one, maybe 1.5 hours, but it’s up the incredible West Coast Highway, which is worth the drive just by itself, plan a stop also at Punakaiki (which has the most excellent DoC office). There aren’t a lot of food options, we got sandwiches from the Hokitika Sandwich Company and brought with us from Hokitika.

Cool little goldmine. Great gentleman at the start. Saw some wetas (one fell on me 😮) and a trap door spider. Well worth a visit very rustic.

At Charleston there is a new, modern building housing cafe, toilets and the hq of tours into the local glow worm caves, and for the Charleston Nile River Railway, a modern day version of the bush trams that once served the region. It’s a narrow gague track, and the carriages are basic plank seats, pulled by a small Diesel engine. The real attraction of this journey is the beautiful rain forest and scenery through which this little train travels.

Called in to this historic site on our way North. Spoke to a bloke working in the car park (turns out he's a member of the family who owns/runs the site) and asked if it was open. Advised it was so we went through their reception area, paid the $20 entry fee and then followed the somewhat overgrown and unloved rail track around the site and back into the car park - probably 10 minutes. Very disappointing. Spoke to the same bloke with our concerns who decided they weren't really open and hadn't been since the Covid thing (his words).
In hindsight, we should have demanded our money back. Had the car park bloke been a bit more honest about the place, perhaps offered to walk around with us and point out some history, we wouldn't have felt so ripped off.
In our view, the site has been let go a bit - for an historic place with so much history (and potential), and collecting easy money, they could be a whole lot sharper.

We really enjoyed our visit to this site. It gave a true insight into how the mine worked. It's not for those who want a shiny premises, it's for those of us who want to see how it really was working here. The place has an amazing feel and nature is reclaiming parts of the site

We visited on a weekday outside of the holiday season and there was no one in the office so we paid our $20 ($10 each) into the honesty box. Enjoyed the walkway around the site which basically follows old tram lines going through several tunnels presumable where miners had worked before. Saw the water wheel, stamper and old gold digging equipment but had to imagine the story behind it without anyone to ask. Appreciate that having someone on duty to explain the site history is costly and a big draw on someone’s time but why not put together a pamphlet that we could read for ourselves?
Had read others reviews and prepared with a torch but not really needed for the main tunnels. There appeared to be a few side tunnels which we decided not to explore that may have been darker. Did see cave weta but gave them a wide berth. Downwards part of track might be slippery in the wet with limited handrails. Interesting mysterious piece of gold mining history.

Entry fee $10, put a number of punters off & they got straight back into their cars.

The entry room was dirty & poorly layed out, just stuff crammed into a space. The walk around the diggings was good but no information boards anywhere. Has the basics of a good experience but needs some polish. As this experience is being charged for better standards are expected.
