Take a trip back through a golden era of New Zealand’s history in the South Island’s scenic Otago region. The romance and adventure of the gold rush days is easy to recapture in this rugged landscape which still bears the signs of the goldminers’ struggles to win their fortunes by striking it RICH. Many New Zealand families can trace their first connection with New Zealand from these early endeavours.

Come along for a Victorian Picnic to celebrate the restoration work completed at Stewart Town.  Stewarts cottage re-pointing and roofover plus Menzies dam stabilisation work  Trek your way to Hawea 23rd Feb - 2nd March 2019
