Oh my goodness this place is amazing . Incredible drive up up and up . We did it in motorhome no problems . So do high the view amazing . History of the coal mining for over 100 years in the place . They and their families worked and lived here on top of the world . One of the if not the steepest railway incline in the world . You must see this . The presentation is amazing . Lots of beautifully presented information boards very tastefully done full of history, great stories and pics of days gone by.

Interesting history of West Coast Coal mining. Excellent information boards and views. The coal rail incline is recognised as one of NZ engineering greatest achievements.

Only a small part is closed. Amazing view from the a little bit hidden lookout point.
