Stunning views and interesting walk
Loved this, highly recommend, very interesting- didn't take us quite as long as sign suggested- the times must allow for reading the information, photos etc...which we did, but we comfortably did the 1.5 hr loop in 1.25 hrs with photo stops, etc. I could enjoy going back there. Historical info. Saw families enjoying the walk. Suitable for everyone interested in a bit of history and quite varied scenery....unique. Would be quite an exposed walk on a very hot or cold day, so dress appropriately.

Spectacular walk through history

It’s a big area where the landscape has got totally modified by the sluicing operations and it looks like the California badlands. It was a really interesting walk and we enjoyed it. Lots of information boards. Stewarttown was a highlight with the old house amongst the old apple and pear trees. You could just imagine the families and kids running around.

Fantastic walk around gold workings
We visited the Bannockburn Sluicings Walks yesterday and walked the loop track in an anticlockwise direction. The walk was fantastic and the landscape, like many others have said, was like very few others you will see on walks in New Zealand. It was especially meaningful to myself as my great great grandfather was a digger at Bannockburn and was actually arrested there with some of his colleagues in 1870 for sheep rustling. Awesome to see the type of place he would have been living in at the time. But back to the walk, as others have said, it takes about one and a half hours to do the loop track and take in Stewart Town. We did it in this time with three children and a certain amount of photo taking and climbing in and out of tunnels. The view from the top is awesome. We went in the steeper direction as climbing up into Bailey’s Gully seemed to provide a scenic view on the way up. Coming down the other side was then a gentle, easy roll back down to the carpark. It is quite cool and damp in Central Otago at the moment when compared to normal summer temperatures, meaning it was sunny but cool when we did the walk. This was a good thing as I can imagine it gets pretty hot and dry out the track on other days. The wild thyme added to the goldfields feel. As others have said, you can smell it all around the track. The information boards around the track were very informative, although the walking times for return to the carpark at various points were a bit askew. We also visited the General Store at Bannockburn township. There is an old slicing jet sitting outside the front which was helpful for explaining to my kids what had caused the landscape. In all, even if you aren’t descended from a miner I would highly recommend this walk!

Landscape from another world

Well worth a visit. Great combination of gold rush history and scenery. The well-signposted loop track takes 1-1.5 hours. Undulating trail but not too strenuous. The landscape, produced by goldmine sluicing is incredible. DOC signage along the route explains the gold mining history. There’s a small car park but no other facilities.

A tough way to earn a living
On a hot day, you really don't want to walk up hill to see a tourist site, but the workers did that daily and were unsure if they could make a living. The geography is almost unreal, but the loop walk is not difficult and you finish the walk down hill. Be sure to carry some water with you on a hot day.

Der Walk ist etwas abseits der üblichen Route aber einen Abstecher wert.
Sonnencreme und -schutz nicht vergessen, da komplett in der Sonne. Gleicht einer Wild-West Landschaft.
Einige Infoschilder und verschiedene (teilweise schlecht beschilderte) Abstecher (z. B. Zum Steindamm).

An absoulte must if you have a spare 1½ hours
This walk is an absolute must do if you are in the area. The environment is nothing like I have ever experienced, full of history, and great information along the way. It was fascinating to see the remains of the old mining towns, and a great way to work off a few calories before/after doing the vineyards.

Very interesting place
That area gives you a very good impression how gold diggers in the 19th century worked and lived and how they created a moon landscape with their greed to find the devils metal.

Great views and interesting site
2020年2月 • 夫妻情侣
There was parking tonight by the walk. The walk is well sign posted and takes about an hour to walk round the site. There are good description boards. There are great views of the site and the surrounding countryside that makes this a very good walk.
