A TALE OF BOOM & BUST AND A WEST COAST TOWN THAT REFUSED TO DIE. 

On the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island, lie the ghosts of Waiuta, one of New Zealand’s richest gold towns. WHISPERS OF GOLD tells Waiuta’s story from its beginnings to current day.

Archive film and photographs give a rare glimpse of 1900’s mining town life – the colourful characters, stories, and the gold that kept its heart beating but left a toxic legacy.

Waiuta has now come full circle as a passionate group restore it as an official New Zealand Landmark, while others are looking to once again mine the untold riches below.
