Well worth driving to the old stone store. From the car park take a lovely short stroll across a bridge past a lovely coffee shop. The area has been well done up and has lovely gardens. Beautiful views and plenty of opportunities for photos. The history is well presented and being inside the store gave a feeling of living many... More

Loved the setup and despite being very different to when we last visited 18 years ago it is even better. Really enjoyed the stone tore, and walking across the river. Our daughter loved the birds on the river even if we don't know what they were. This area is just beautifully restored and made to enjoy.

History was very interesting. The store itself is set in a very picturesque setting. Just be aware that street signage takes you to a car park across the stream from the store (not to the store itself), so be prepared to either walk across the foot bridge, or find directions on how to drive your car to the stone store.

Well told by the staff at the Store, a must see place to visit and relax by the river. So much to NZ history and it all started right here in Kerikeri.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Kerikeri - the Stone Store especially. It is lovely to see heritage is preserved still - 1836 I believe? What a beautiful setting - could have easily spent the day lazing around there. The store itself has a wonderful array of goods, many of which jogged the memory. We had afternoon tea in the... More
