During winter - tours operate on demand, so give us a call on 0274 424 777 (Ronnie) or call at our shop - The Future Dough Co Tearooms & Bakery (the base for our tours) on 03 732 8497
Tours take approx 2 1/2 hours up to the gold mine. If you wish to visit the Blacks Point Museum & stamper battery first and get a taste of the 'old' then the 'new', you'll need to allow 3 hours - or a little more as we often have to pull people away......!
During the shorter winter days we recommend scheduling a tour between 9am and 3.30pm but if this is not for you, a night tour is also a great option
Group enquiries welcome - we take your touring in our 20-seater 4WD bus - and offer group discounts from 8 people
Why not make a day of it? A great option for groups
In the morning - join us on a Historic Reefton walk to hear how prospectors flocked to Reefton in the 1870s to make their fortune and pop out to the Blacks Point Museuem & gold stamper to 'set the scene' for the present day mining operation. Reefton Heritage Tours...
Lunch with the Bearded Miners at their replica slab hut on Broadway, right in the heart of town, or if it's a little chilly for that, a great spot is our historic Oddfellows Hall where you can absorb history as well as your lunch. Our shop can conjure you up some lovely finger food or buffet options. The Future Dough Co Tearooms & Bakery
After lunch head up to Oceana Gold's mine for the afternoon.
