Our hotel thought they we closed , but she rang Ian up on his cell (thanks Fairley Motor Lodge) and he opened it up for just the two of us. So thankful. Ian is the genuine deal.

This is a museum like attraction by the sea in an old wool-shed. There are animals on site that you can get close to and there is a tour explaining the history of sheep shearing in New Zealand. There is also a souvenir shop on site.
