Waihi and Waikino , New Zealand, 24 September 2010
We took the trip back to Auckland via the Bay of Plenty coast to call in at the goldfields town of Waihi.
Some mining tramway remains were on display in the town.
Across the gorge at Waikino are the ruins of the Victoria Battery with a 2ft gauge tourist line on site. Nearly everything was locked away – battery locomotives are used, but the line would be an interesting one to travel on.
