Chatto Creek Dredge

The dredge extracted a rich seam of gold from the Manuherikia River 114 years ago and is now located a couple of kilometres away from where the dredge was based from 1889-1901 and is easily accessible for those that want to take a step back in time.

The dredge worked on the river between 1898 and 1901 before the Chatto Creek Dredge Company went into liquidation.
