Detailed information

“Shantytown is a leading New Zealand culture and heritage attraction. Made up of over 30 historic buildings it is a faithfully recreated 19th century pioneer town, inspired by the West Coast gold rushes of the 1860s. Highlights include riding the steam train, gold panning, the Beehive store with its range of traditional confectionery and the opportunity to have an old time photo portrait taken as a memento of your visit.”

Shantytown is mostly accessible but the gravel track to the Gold Claim and the track back to town are better suited to a more robust type of wheelchair.
