Facts about Kerikeri Township with location information
Orchards line the road leading into Kerikeri with roadside stalls offer visitors the chance to buy seasonal fruit. While travelling through, look for signs pointing the way to artists’ studios – resident potters and painters of this area have provided it's creative edge. The Kerikeri township provides a contemporary edge with sophisticated galleries and dining options. However, the area is cloaked in history. Located here is New Zealand's oldest house (Kemp House built in 1821) and the Stone Store (1832). At the Kerikeri basin, you can see the remains of the terraced pa site, Kororipo. Other local attractions include a replica pre-European Maori village and the walk to Rainbow Falls.
