    Te Aroha Information Office

    Favorite thing: Te Arohas Information Centre was built as the ticketing and information office for the Domain - it has been an information Centre of sorts for more or less the whole time it has stood. A pretty little building typical of New Zealand, there is a small museum inside with displays about the local areas history as well as the usual information desk and wealth of leaflets. Forming part of the Heritage Trail itself, this is the place to come for a map and leaflet in order to explore Te Aroha on foot.

    Te Aroha Information Office.

    Favorite thing: This information office is situated in a really nice old building and if you call here, get a sheet about the surrounding Domain and it's history.
    Postcards, souvenirs and gifts are also available, DOC (Dept of Conservation) maps and booklets too. The staff are really friendly and helpful.

    Fondest memory: Open Mon - Fri, 9.30am - 4.30pm

    Coming in to town, cross the Bridge.

    Bridge

    Favorite thing: As you come in to town from the West or South, you get to cross this lovely old bridge. OK it isn't the Golden Gate, but it is nicely painted and rather quaint for small town New Zealand.
    I particularly like seeing it as the sun goes low in the sky and makes the lovely colour glow a bit. Looks kinda cool with Mt TeAroha in the background.
    At this point you cross the Waihou River, which is the same river where many kilometers upstream I introduced you to the beautiful clear waters of an amazing springfeed headwaters. Link to that page here.

    Fondest memory: The hot pools!!

    When the mountain speaks!

    Te Aroha

    Favorite thing: Even when the mountain is exherting her powers over Te Aroha town, there is a certain romance about the feel there.
    We are reminded at this moment, that the mountain rules and there is nothing we can do, but to leave, if we don't like it.

    Old bank.

    Favorite thing: They have made the main street rather cute with colours and stuff. Here is the old bank, brightly painted and now a café. I didn't eat or go into the café so can't really make a tip about it, but just to show you how they are presenting these old buildings.
