Old Brunner Mine Site
The details of when we were in a certain place started getting a little blurry at this point in the trip, so some of these posts might be out of order. Never mind.
Somewhere along the way we stopped off to see the Old Brunner Mine Site. It was a coal mine on the west coast of the south island. Unfortunately there was a huge disaster and a lot of people died. You can still smell the toxic gas coming from the mine entrance, Mark was brave enough to go up and take a peek, but then we decided we best stay away from any noxious gases.
Here’s some pictures though.
