A2O runs past our front door. We welcome all visitors to our quirky museum which provides a snapshot of early European life and features tools from the local Maori (Waitaha).

Other stories include the war years, rabbits, shearing, the creation of the Waitaki Dam and the many firsts that this valley can boast. Entry is free though our tiger would love a donation.
