Fleming River/Tractor Exhibit (Map reference No 9)

This five minute walk at the Fleming River takes you into the old mill settlement to view the logging tractor that was built to haul logs along the wooden rail tracks. Cover shed with period photoes showing the hard life these people endured in the Catlins. There was a school and a large number of inhabitants in the hay day of the logging era. Now all gone and the bush is taking back the area.

The Fleming River is popular with people to go on kayaking trips.
