It was really fun to walk around here and see all the arts and crafts on display. It was a Sunday, and most shops were open. Wandered in and out of many shops before heading to Christchurch. An easy stop off of Highway 1. We even saw some folks dressed in period clothes. Fun!

A welcome by the ladies in period costume was great, they gave us a brief rundown of the area as well as a brochure . We were able to wander around and have lunch, the best Fish & chips in all NZ. (Blue Cod )A great experience.

wonderful blast into the past. I love old buildings so this is a big draw for me. the shopkeepers mostly dress in character and are very obliging when it comes to photos.

Worth the time to stop a night if you had not planned to and walk around this area. The shops, the artist interaction, the buildings and the history make this a fantastic place to spend an afternoon, day or morning.
