New Zealand is a country that is too young, and its history of more than 100 years is lacklustre. And that short gold rush was an important page in the history of this country. Many relics of the time have been preserved here.
Just like Founders Heritage Park in Nelson, this is also an artificial town like a movie studio, recreating Greymouth during the gold rush in the 1960s. Here you can take the train, visit the museum, have a drink in the bar, and try the real gold panning. It is a place where you can learn and entertain. It is very suitable for family travel.
A lot of historical relics from the gold rush years are preserved!
The European park is very suitable for parent-child travel. This shantytown historical park in Greymouth was built by people later to commemorate history. I always thought it was a historical site from a long time ago and was protected. Built into a park. Let’s take a look at the tips first! ◎Attraction address: 316 Rutherglen Rd, Rutherglen, Greymouth 7805 ◎Opening hours: 8:30 am to 5:00 pm In fact, this is a very classic European park, with hills, jungles, lawns, and small bungalows in various colors. But still many different things can be found. For example, I saw a train at the entrance. The train looked no different, but after a closer look, there were a lot of traces of rust. I heard that the local government specially invited craftsmen to make the rust, and try to make it as large as possible. It feels quite deliberate to restore historical sites. There is a small bungalow here, the exterior is red, it is very worth seeing, the inside is in dilapidated condition, and there are some carriages, of course rusted carriages. Near these items, there is also a small card that specifically introduces the history of the item it restored. In short, this is really a very suitable place for family outings, where you can learn and play.
This is the age when the gold rush was popular in the 19th century. The town where gold diggers lived and lived, and it is a historic town that retains the architecture and life objects of that era.
