Day 37 of 97 – GOLD RUSH!!!!

Reefton Greymouth Road
Reefton Greymouth Road

Gold Rush Fever hit after Christmas…….

Not far from Greymouth is the town of Reefton and heading south on the coast road there are plenty of other Gold Rush Towns including a rebuilt Shanty Town. The Shanty Town is worth an afternoon visit.

If your looking for a laugh head to one of the DOC’s that hire out gold panning equipment and hunt for your own real gold in a river. We didn’t find any 🙁 but people were pulling out small pieces to take home.
