    A great place to go to see the things that helped develop our country. Extensive collections of everyday items from as far back as the first settlers. The water turbine is in restoration and is one of a kind, it will be fantastic to see this monster operating again.
    I hope the woolshed can be restored as well as its such an iconic building. Me and my mother stuck in there for some photos many many years ago, it would be great to have it safe enough to do so again.
    We also used catering and had a lovely spread in the onsite "cafe"

    Ballooning was wonderful, not at all scary. An imperceptible take-off and Landing - on our nephews farm at Greendale.

    Now that I have done it I realise how quintessential an experience it is for every Cantabrian!
    a beautiful display of geography, physics and the history of flight. Despite the frosty start it was not cold aloft, with heat from the burner and you are always drifting with the wind, so there is by definition no windchill.
    You observe all the dynamics of altitude and wind speed and see the whole province’s formative geography from mountains to sea, the towns and farmers awakening - as well as a wonderful sunrise.
    Recommended. The best company is Ballooningcanterbury with Michael Oakley, world champion glider and balloonist.

    If you thought the South Island HIgh COuntry was all mountains, matagouri and merinos then you would be mistaken. The ever changing daily range of vistas, from grasslands to scree covered slopes and mountain tops, have created lifelong memories. ALso created lifetime experiences for our party; travelling roads less travel, meeting passionate land owners, learning about different farming practises, visiting points of interest, eating sumptuous meals and staying in superior accomodation. Made all the more enjoyable by our hosts with their knowledge and hands on familiarity of the rural surroundings we travelled through, its history and the people.
    a NZ Tourism 1980’s slogan “Don’t leave home till you’ve seen the country” has never been so true.
