Omapere has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world. So much to see and the Labyrinth Woodworks was a delight to visit with lots to see. Loved trying the puzzles and would definitely visit again.

Could stay there for hours playing with all the little puzzles. Worth the visit and in a very nice area. Head to the waterfalls just adjacent for a scenic walk. Owners of the place were very lovely and had every puzzle you could imagine there.
