Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We visited this museum with a group - a pity it was under renovation at the time - nevertheless we viewed a couple of displays and enjoyed a wee dram of whiskey. It is going to be great once all the reno’s are completed. Definitely worth a visit.

    Excellent. It is currently being reconstructed but Karen who we spoke to was so informative and spent sometime with us explaining what it will be like when it is all completed. We so enjoyed hearing her knowledge. Thank you Karen.

    Beautiful 18 hole frisbee golf course amongst the trees and well cared for lawns. Take your discs and give it a go. Hidden gem.

    Trip down memory lane for me having live here in 1999/2000 as a travelling banker.
    Gardens are still lovely and I remember the large trees, Rose Garden and Bird Aviary well. Beautifully kept

    This gallery has stunning examples of New Zealand art (Len Lye, Ralph Hotare, Rita Angus) and well as examples of non-western art collected by the Gallery’s benefactor.

    Free entry. An outstanding collection that you would not imagine could be in a town the size of Gore.

    What an amazing collection in all the village buildings and museum and enjoy a guided tour by the volunteers. A huge amount of work has gone in their display and cleanliness of exhibits with many telling their story of the past.
    Congratulations to the people who run this Museum showing early local history.

    Great course in fantastic condition. Very friendly and welcoming membership. Equipment available. Free lessons during daylight saving on Wednesdays at 5.30 pm - just turn up. Fun twilight golf on a Tuesday for teams of 3 to play 9 holes and enjoy a eef and raffles. Members of any other course welcome to join main Saturday competition. Annual Trilogy competition End of November and Gore Classic mid February. Highly recommended.

    Wow! Totally surprised this is not higher up the "things to do" list on trip advisor.
    We met Alet one of the owners at the milking shed in the afternoon. She was so welcoming and got us sorted with overalls, gumboots and refreshments.

    We were taken around the milking shed and even got our own chance to milk a cow. Alet had a great indepth knowledge of how the farm and industry works. After trying some delicious fresh milk, we travelled in a trailer pulled by Massey Ferguson tractor to go on tour around the farm. I was impressed with how highly maintained it is and could appreciate the passion and love that the owners and staff put in.

    During the drive around we met Alet's husband Phil & his son Jimmy. Both are lovely are seem to just love their farm.

    We got to see the second milking shed, feed some calves and meet the piggies.

    I didn't want the tour to end as the information was so interesting.

    I would reccomend this tour, dairy is such a big part of NZ, I feel like it's a great way to see the work and faces behind that bottle of milk & block of cheese etc.

    Thank you for holding these tours.

    We stayed at Barry and Diane's magnificent bed and breakfast. Our room was spacious and had everything you could possibly want. The breakfast was 5 star with homemade jams, biscuits and seasonal produce.
    Barry took us out on a windy day but he managed to keep us out of the wind. He's local knowledge was amazing.
    Diane made us a beautiful lunch and we continued fishing until 630. They also helped us plan the rest of our holiday, so we didn't miss attractions that we would have without there recommendations. Can't wait to return as
    so many of there visitors! We are hooked!

    Julian was a fantastic guide! I am a total rookie and I had my first fish in the net within the first 45 minutes. He was incredibly patient and knew the river front to back. If one fly didn't work, he switched them and we almost always had instant action afterwards.
