Blacks Point

Blacks Point

Blacks Point is a few kilometres along the road from Reefton and was a major access point to the gold fields in the hills above the Inangahua River. There is a small parking area where the main Victoria Forest Park track network starts. Next door is a small museum – worth a visit to see how we used to live and what we valued.

There is also more parking above the museum next to an old, but still working, stamping battery. But you will need to ask the museum keeper to open it up and turn it on for you (it is worth it!). Just above the battery is another access to the track network. Various bits of equipment from the gold days are scattered around the area.
