What makes Kerikeri Special
Kerikeri has a rich and colourful history. The Stone Store is New Zealand's oldest building. Rewa's Village will take you back to a time before European settlement. And a visit to the Kerikeri Mission Station and Pete's Pioneers Transport Museum is not to be missed.
Kerikeri is widely known for its successful horticulture, niche food products, fabulous chocolates, boutique vineyards, art galleries, cafes and crafts.
Foodies everywhere come to stock up on an abundance of fresh local foods at the Farmer's Market every Sunday morning.
Explore the Vineyard Trail and taste some of our great wines.
ART, CRAFT AND CULTURE
The Crafts Market, just across the road from the Farmer's Market, is a great place to find those unique gifts made here by a wide variety of artists and crafts persons.
Expand your horizons along the Kerikeri Art & Craft Trail.
And there is always something to enjoy at The Centre - our new Arts & Performance Venue.
GARDENS AND WALKS
Kerikeri has two 'Gardens of National Significance': Palmco and Wharepuke Gardens - both places to enjoy a quiet walk and discover plants you may not have seen before.
Only slightly more challenging is a 1 1/2 hour round trip bush walk up the river to our spectacular Rainbow Falls.
Or do it in style, and take the steamboat ride at the historic Stone Store Basin, chuffing along past New Zealand's oldest historic buildings.
