A Traditional New Zealand Hillcountry Farm Tour

‘Come as a stranger and leave as a friend.’

Don’t be misled that you are about to embark on merely a simple farm tour.


A visit to this 5th, 6th and now 7th generation family, descendants of the earliest French settlers on Banks Peninsula, is thought provoking and entertaining whilst it educates you on how farming has developed from 1837 to the present day.

This is the highlight of our stay in New Zealand. My wife and I "embedded" ourselves at Paua Bay Farm for 24 hours experiencing the shearing, the dogs and their demonstration, a wonderful dinner and overnight stay. Because we visited during COVID restrictions, this was not a standard tour, but we experienced the same things mentioned in other reviews. We would return in an instant.
