The small town of Reefton is a place for everyone to enjoy - be it for a day or two, a week or a place to call home. Reefton's gold rush in the 1860's helped to establish a rich heritage. As well as being the first to have a public supply of electricity, the town was the first to switch on an electric street lighting system in the Southern Hemisphere.
