In the district

Historic Hayes Engineering is steeped in history. Stables, a dairy, works and homestead where shafts and pulleys worked their magic back in the golden era of mining in NZ. A perfect place to stop for lunch & coffee on your way through to Oturehua. 

Nearby is the amazing historic town of St Bathan’s, famous for its gold mining past and haunted pub. A shuttle tour can be arranged, or perhaps a trip to Naseby where you’re only 20 mins away from a game of curling or luging.
Indoor curling at Naseby can be done all year round, outdoor curling and luge from June to September. 



In addition, the Maniototo offers a selection of golf courses, art tours, high country 4WD tours and wildlife safaris.
