The Goldfields Mining Centre – A tour of the 19th century

Hearing the name New Zealand would always bring beautiful images to one’s memory. The lush green fields that spread for acres and acres and the beautiful mountains with snowcaps or the calm waters that reflects in the warm sun are picture-perfect locations that anyone would come across while vacationing on this paradise nation. There are many activities that one could take part while in this beautiful country too. The best way to explore the natural wonders is to go on a hiking tour or go on cycling. Apart from these places, there are many locations in New Zealand where there are interesting historical sites preserved for the future generations to witness and appreciate.
The Goldfields Mining Centre is one such important location, which has been preserved in its original state. Once visitors set foot on this nineteenth-century gold strike site, they would be transported to that time instantly. Walk through and explore the mine where thousands of people worked extremely hard to extract the gold from soil. The tunnels that would be winding everywhere should definitely be explored. Imagine the life of these workers almost more than hundred years ago, digging deep underground, with just lanterns for light with no other guarantee for the safety of their lives. You would be amazed to find out the distance that the miners had to go to find water, since there is no source of water near the mining site. The equipment that used to crush the rocks would still stand there giving the modern day visitors a glimpse of the technology during that era. If you are very lucky, you too would find bits and pieces of gold yourself to take home.
