Map showing Miners Hut

Bringing Reefton's history to life are the Bearded Mining Company at the Miners Hut.

Come and learn how a miner lived in the 19th century when the promise of gold lured thousands of prospectors to the area. Sit in front of the fire, enjoy a cup of tea, watch pieces of iron and steel being shaped on the blacksmith forge or try your hand at gold panning where flakes of gold are 'guaranteed' to be found!

Depicting 1860s style housing, this replica hut is made of native cedar slabs and set amongst native plantings right in the heart of town on Broadway.
