Easy, flat walk to the Luck at Last mine battery site with lots of ruins and equipment.

One of the best preserved old mining sites on the Coromandel. A network of tracks explore the mine area.

A well sign posted track in the forest provides a scenic walk to old gold mine ruins where you can view old mining relics. Winding through a scrubby harvested forest landscape, the initially unformed track soon descends to the old level carriageway bounded by native trees and the Wharekawa stream. Some 50-60 minutes from the car park the track leads over a bridge then to the right, a short distance to the first view of the battery site. Mine tunnels and more building sites are further up the river.
