Stop At: Okains Bay Maori & Colonial Museum, 1146 Okains Bay Road, Okains Bay 7583, New Zealand
Probably the most authentic Maori and Colonial museums in New Zealand. Nestled in the heart of Okaines Bay this trip back in time when the Maori and the British settlers first arrived in Banks (Island) Peninsula will enthral you. Hand carved canoes, farming equipment and relics of the first settlers swamp this home of history. Wander the grounds, explore the nooks and crannies….be amazed!
Duration: 45 minutes
Stop At: Barrys Bay Cheese, 5807 Christchurch Akaroa Road Barrys Bay, Akaroa 7582 New Zealand
You'll be warmly welcomed at this true 'local' cheese factory.
When Barrys Bay Cheese produced its first cheddar in 1895, it was just one of nine small, family-owned dairy cooperatives dotted around Banks Peninsula. Life was quite a challenge then, so the original hard doers at Barrys Bay weren’t alone in turning their hand to creating something useful from an abundant natural resource.
One by one, those little family dairy businesses eventually fell by the wheyside, so to speak, leaving the Barrys Bay factory near Duvauchelles as the last outpost of traditional cheese making on the Peninsula. To ensure the continuation of our cheese making tradition, we built a new factory at Barrys Bay in the early 1950s, the very same factory you come across today on your way to Akaroa. Step inside, sample the cheese made on the premises, watch the men or women at work.
Duration: 15 minutes
Stop At: Shamarra Alpacas, 328 Wainui Main Road, Akaroa 7582, New Zealand
