WHAT YOU VISIT
Elms Mission Station
Located at the northern tip of Te Papa peninsula, the Elms is one of the oldest heritage sites in New Zealand. Founded by Anglican priest Alfred Nesbit Brown in 1838, it was here that the Maori were given the opportunity to learn about Christianity, and were educated in reading and writing, as well as learning agricultural and domestic skills. This breath-taking and tranquil oasis features large manicured grounds and you will have a chance to wander and enjoy the scenery at your leisure.

Kiwifruit Country
Set among 148 acres of lush orchards, the idyllic farm is one of the larger kiwifruit properties in the Bay of Plenty. Discover the secrets behind growing kiwifruit with a stroll through the orchard.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
Completed in 1847, the Elms Million House is one of New Zealand's finest Georgian houses and one of the oldest historic buildings in the country. The house was built for the Reverend Alfred Nesbit Brown who came to New Zealand with his first wife Charlotte in 1829 as a missionary for the Church Missionary Society of England.

REFRESHMENTS
Enjoy tea or coffee, chilled kiwifruit juice, freshly baked scones with kiwifruit jam, and freshly whipped cream, slices of green and gold kiwifruit to taste during your visit at Kiwifruit Country.

SHOPPING
