Looking for epic school holiday ideas that will provide hours of fun for both kids and adults alike? Here is the answer!
Round up the family and experience three amazing activities all bundled into one awesome combo, offering great value for money and of course, a tonne of fun!
Waihi Gold Experience: Immerse yourself in exciting and fascinating interactive activities at the Waihi Gold Discovery Centre. Learn all about gold mining and get the inside story, as you explore and see first hand how things work - have a go at rattling the drill, cranking the handles, and pushing the plunger!
Goldfields Railway: Take a journey down memory lane on the Heritage Goldfields Railway as you discover what used to be known as the East Coast Main Trunk Line, an area steeped in gold mining history. Soak up beautiful views along the way and take a break at Waikino Station to enjoy a drink and Devonshire scone. If you like, pack a picnic and spend some extra time exploring the gorge and historic sites before catching a later train back - so convenient and stress-free!
Bullswool Farm Park: Perfectly positioned just minutes from the famous Karangahake Gorge and near the Southern Coromandel, at Bullswool Farm Park you will experience typical Kiwi rural farm life, explore many amazing walking tracks, soak up beautiful views of stunning landscapes, and of course meet and get to hand feed many rare breed animals! These include miniature horses, emus, goats, alpacas, llamas, deer, paint horses, Kune-Kune pigs, miniature cattle, rabbits, rare breed chickens, ducks, pheasants, coloured sheep and donkeys. Kids will love the play area with sculptures by award-winning sculptor, Tony Howse, plus there's an epic native bird reserve and the Gold & Kauri Museum. You can even make a day out of it and pack a picnic lunch to be enjoyed at one of the many picnic spots - the perfect day out with the family!
