Publication cover


Charming Creek Walkway in the Buller region of the West Coast, follows the lower Ngakawau Gorge and the Charming Creek Valley for approximately 9 km from Ngakawau to the abandoned coal mine.

Mostly it follows the alignment of the historic bush tramway and passes several associated historic sites, including the Bins site at Ngakawau, Watson's Sawmill, Mumm's Sawmill, and the Coal Mine.

The baseline inspection recorded historic fabric adjacent to, and on the walkway. This information was then used to assess significance and identify threats.
