History and Heritage



Taranaki Pioneer Village

Central Taranaki

Taranaki Pioneer Village on State Highway 3, just south of Stratford in Central Taranaki, offers 10 acres of Taranaki Heritage. Take a nostalgic stroll through yesteryear and experience an outdoor museum presenting the life of Taranaki pioneers in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries - recall childhood memories and introduce the good old days to the younger generation. A major central Taranaki visitor attraction that appeals to all ages with modern amenities which contrast with a 'stepping back in time' experience as visitors enter village main street.

Tawhiti Museum

South Taranaki

Tawhiti Museum is a truly unique enterprise. The creation of artist Nigel Ogle, its attention to detail is simply stunning. Widely acclaimed as the best private museum in the country, the museum uses life size exhibits and scale models to present our heritage in a series of super realistic and engaging displays. All these displays are designed and built on the premises in the 'Body Shop' and accompanying studios, which can be viewed as part of a museum visit.

Forgotten World Adventures

Central Taranaki

Experience a railway tour with a difference. In 1901 construction on the Stratford to Okahukura Railway Line began. Over a period of 32 years, 24 tunnels were carved using pick axes and shovels allowing the link from Stratford, the heart of the Taranaki region, to Taumarunui, the heart of King Country. The railway line became an essential link to the outside world for the communities, businesses and farms that established in this remote country. Forgotten World Adventures provides self-driven rail tours along the now decommissioned railway line in specially modified rail carts. Departing from Stratford or Taumarunui, enjoy a one or two-day tour exploring the deep hidden valleys of New Zealand's Forgotten World. The tours depart during the summer months of October through to April and truly are the best way to explore the Forgotten World.
