Description

Invincible Gold Mine Track.
View into the Rees Valley

Part of the Otago Goldfields Park, this uphill walk gives you wonderful views of the Rees Valley and Mt Earnslaw / Pikirakatahi. Remains of the water wheel and a unique set of seven berdans - the large, slowly revolving cast iron bowls in which the ore was ground - are also visible. Miners built the track in the early 1880s.

Getting there

30 minutes drive up Rees Valley Road from Glenorchy. Please note: the road is gravel with fords.
