We learned to ride a pony for free, Funny!
It was a pleasure to see the old past of the town still surviving, not demolished all 'for progress' or redevelopment.
Worth a visit walking around the little victorian town, plenty to see and buy if one should choose to, also the penguins early morning.
Great walking around a Victorian town, plenty to see.
Very unique in New Zealand. Go on Sunday when there is a farmers market nearby.
A good experience. Nice arts and crafts to be found there, and some great quirky details. We also really enjoyed the playground nearby - which was really good for older children.
