Gold was discovered here during 1877. Many Chinese prospectors worked at Doctors Point. In 1895 a Chinese miner found 100 pounds worth of gold in a rock crevice over the course of three days, which was a huge and historic find.
Tāima is a powerhouse herb, planted here by the miners during the gold rush era of the 1800’s and used remedially during this time. Tāima now grows wild throughout the Central Otago region turning the hill sides into a majestic purple color.
