If you can go on a working day it will add a dimension to what life was like in NZ way back when (for the pakeha) Nice grounds to amble around in.

A stroll around this village is like turning the clock back in your mind. It is fascinating, with all of the buildings containing information of what they once were. Close your eyes and be transported back in time. Finish the visit with a scone and a coffee in the cafe.

My husband and I were married there 25 years ago. I have also visited the village several times for school trips. Last year was with my nephew and it is still as fantastic all these years later.

Went with a group of seniors and really enjoyed the slow pace we ambled thru, taking the time to listen stories of times gone by
