Mount Bruce National Wildlife Centre. Set amidst a pocket of ancient rainforest, the centre runs a captive breeding programme for threatened bird species.

Greytown you can walk the length of New Zealand’s most complete main street of wooden Victorian buildings. There are many fine examples of historic architecture.
