Visit Kerikeri, New Zealand
Kerikeri was once home to the fearsome Maori chief Hongi Hika, but today is better known for citrus orchards, historic buildings and arts and crafts.
New Zealand’s oldest standing stone building, the ‘Stone Store’, and its oldest standing wooden structure, the ‘Kerikeri Mission House’ live side-by-side in the heart of town, still looking just as good as they did when built in the 1840s.
Kerikeri has a lively café scene, plenty of wineries and several gourmet food producers, easily linked in a regional tour.
