From Kawhai the route slips inland to the funky town Otorohanga. A town celebrating kiwiana is an amusing place for kids and all age groups. Hokey Pokey ice cream is a favourite with dairy next door to sample the real thing. For lovers of native birds Otorohanga Kiwi House has guided daily tours to spot our elusive kiwis and detailed kids sheets to keep everyone entertained. The town is pretty with a streetscape framed with floral hanging baskets.
WHAT TO SEE HIGHLIGHTS
Postcard pretty main street is augmented with the Sir Ed Hillary walk, a visual feast of kiwiana objects. Nearby the Otorohanga Historical Society Courthouse Museum, managed by volunteers, has replica buildings and exhibits and is a reservoir of local history. Take a day trip to Kawhai for natural spa treatment at the local hot water beach Te Puia.
