We are in Arrowtown, which has the subtitle "Born of Gold". Like many places in New Zealand, gold was discovered here - in this case by a Maori who had no interest in it. But others did, and, as in so many other places, there was a gold rush. A town sprang up to service the miners and the town remains long after the miners have moved on.

Gold is still there for the finding. This man is looking for some. He has built a small sluice at the edge of the river and is just about use it.
