The bustling town in summer is a hive of activity for visitors to Farewell Spit, the Kahurangi National Park Heaphy track and beach lovers. The town has a number of heritage buildings from St Cuthbert’s Church (1873), Courthouse (1901) and Post Office (1906). From the fire station, follow the trail of heritage plaques along Tasman Street, then turn right to the War Memorials and uphill to the Church.

The Courthouse Cafe, Collingwood

HERITAGE TRAIL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Victorian and Edwardian town buildings in Collingwood from the police station to a courthouse
  • Gold trail with evidence of sluicing and caves worthy of exploration
  • One of NZ’s oldest continuously operated grocery stores with ownership in a single family. Definitely worth time spend devouring home made scones and a coffee
  • Cemeteries where the stories of the past are writ large on suitably moss covered tombstones
