Local history


Historic homestead

Lynda invites you to visit her beautiful old homestead to learn of its 100 year history and to appreciate the craftsmanship that has gone into its building.

High Country sheep station

Two children who grew up on a 48,000 ha high-country sheep station, close to the Clarence River in North Canterbury, talk of the leisurely and quaint up-bringing they enjoyed mixed with Sunday evenings ending in hymn singing around the piano, hardship and hard work.

Waikato River Cruises

Discovery Cruises provide a day and overnight sailing in its luxury vessel, Manuwai Tuarua, on the lower Waikato River, passing through beautiful countryside and providing the guests with a special view of farms, horticulture and bush in their natural state, otherwise not accessible to the general public.
