Lovingly tended by volunteers, .warkeorth Museum is a fascinating stroll through the area history, including NZ service during World Wars, the settlement of the area, and lots of social history including beautiful women’s handicrafts.

Museum has decent historical exhibition, very good for the museum of the size. Also make sure you go on track, its an easy, beautiful natural walk. And definitely take a picture with big kauri :)

We were impressed with the gathering of local knowledge and found the nearby walk through the Kauri forest a lovely thing to do.

Nice little park close to town with a collection of local artifacts collected and donated over the years. Nice documentation of how the town grew based on timber and petrified gum from some amazing trees. Great mention of American soldiers that were stationed here before...More

Historic artefacts and objects are so interesting in these small town museums because for those of us of 'older generation', they seem so recent! Our grandparents owned those things! This is what makes a visit so special. Besides the museum there is a great facility...More
