  • Quaint, old and boutique shops. Nice detour on way to QT or Wanaka. Recommend to pass through. Suitable winter and summer  more »
  • ALWAYS a must visit when we are in the area. Just wish they would make it so no cars in the main street. So quaint & uncommercialised, hopefully it will never change.  more »
