Chinese Stonework

One of the most moving sites that I have seen since moving here is one on the Clutha called Doctors Point. It is quite a hike but I went there by boat. In many places on the site there is stonework made my Chinese goldminers. This path is an example.

One theory about the name Doctors Point is that it was called that not because a doctor lived there but because there was a saying amongst miners when they were going to the pub that they 'were going to the doctor'.
