Step back in time and discover a recreated gold-rush town. Shantytown tells a story of fortitude and pioneering spirit through a fascinating mix of experience and displays. Ride the Steam Train through native rainforest, experience the sights and sounds of a working sawmill, follow the water races to the Gold Claim to pan for gold. Over 30 shops and buildings to explore including the new Foundry experience, Holographic theatre and the dark shed extension which houses three preserved bush trams. An old-time photo is the perfect memento. Located between Greymouth and Hokitika.
