The Lost Gypsy Gallery & Coffee

2532 Papatowai Highway, Papatowai

At Papatowai, tucked away in the Catlins south of Dunedin, is a green house bus that's the studio of our artist-craftsman-tinkerer extraordinaire Blair Somerville. In here, you won’t know where to look first - quite wacko and brilliantly eccentric. If this gallery pleases the mind then our museum is a must-see. Wander through and explore all the quirky automata, wind-up and water-driven gadgets and gizmos that he has cleverly made from found objects — shells, toys, coins, wood, watches, wire — each guaranteed to make you smile with delight.

At the Little Rocket cafe, say hi to Carol and make sure you enjoy her divine coffee & titillating homemade bakeries
