A local gallery of beautiful unique works of art focused of Southland landscapes.
Take a step back in time! A great stopping place as part of the local Heritage Trail - the Templeton Family owned and operated a Flax Mill on this very site. A visit to this museum will reveal how this happened in the "good old days" and enlighten you to the wonderful way flax can be used in this day and age. A short film aids in understanding the process required to transform flax to a valuable and usable commodity.Then guests are treated to a working demonstration of the Mill in action. A valuable outing and learning exercise for the whole family.
