Visit the Brunner Mine Site, a heritage site. The Brunner suspension footbridge spans the Grey River, linking both sides of the mine site. The site was once of the Country's earliest industrial sites where coal was mined and coke, firebricks and other products manufactured from the 1860's until the 1940's. The area is well interpreted with a short walk around the historic coke ovens, brick factory and remains of the tunnel entrances.
