On your way to the well-known Denniston historic coal mining site, you will find towns with a coal mining legacy that are now largely forgotten. Granite, Ngakawau is still a coal depot for the Stockton mine, Hector, Wainangaroa, and Millerton.
As part of the Denniston narrative Stockton Coal Mine is currently operating and, as part of the story of West Coast, coal mining is worth a detour. Follow in the footsteps of prospectors, a heritage gold and coal mining trail. Today you will be on the trail of a nineteenth-century gold miner.
You will be traveling north viewing Denniston Plateau to your right as you travel between the mountains and sea delving into the past in Hector, Granity foreshore and Granite Museum, Ngakawau, Millerton, and Stockton. Hector is the home to the Country Music Museum. Visit Granity and witness the action of climate change on a small settlement.
