Kerikeri Mission Station - Kerikeri - 25 minute drive
It’s an enchanting scene: a sleepy Northland river basin, where two of Aotearoa New Zealand’s oldest buildings, one made of stone, one of timber, sit nestled on the riverbank, with a heritage orchard and cottage garden flowerbeds. Peel back 200 years of history, however, and the site of the Kerikeri Mission Station turns out to be anything but tranquil.
