Despite arriving late in the afternoon we were able to get a good look around the house. A very interesting place outlining the history of whaling.

what a great place, so full of history could of spent a lot longer in here. It's run solely on the funds it gets from your visit. and has a great gift shop too.

It doesn't look much from the outside. But once you take a closer look you realise the foundations are actually made of Whale Bone Vertibrae and the history becomes very apparent. A fascinating hour or so of splendid old New Zealand. Fantastic value for only 10 bucks.

A whaling history lesson. A. Whaler's prefab cottage brought from Australia in the mid 1800s. The history of three families who lived in it and the answer to why it is psi ted pink. A modest NZ$5 entry fee is worth it. Ann or another lady will give you some points and the similarities of this and other whaling houses around the world. A good and interesting lesson...
