There’s bound to be a small town out there that’s calling your name: Waimate. Waimate is home to one of New Zealand’s largest pieces of street art.

Waimate attractions: Arcadia Theatre, Dr Margaret Cruickshank MD memorial, Waimate Museum and Archives, Aussie wallabies, Bushtown Waimate Heritage Park and The White Horse… and that’s not all.

The New Zealand rugby team is a kiwi identity badge. Spanning over 125 years, the All Blacks have won more than 70% of all the international matches they have played. We stop by Kurow, where Richie McCaw, one of NZ’s great players spent his childhood.

Vanished World is a mine of information from displayed excavations of enormous prehistoric penguins to self-guided route maps. Your brief foray into the geopark will start with well-known Elephant Rocks.

Just around the corner is Moeraki boulders, granite shaped and smoothed by eons of sea water movement. Magic made by nature is worth the visit.
