Loved this place, only takes a minute of your time and really brightens up the day. Apparently only the winter teapots are out at the moment, so there will be even more in a few weeks.

Just a garden that has obviously become a passion, all sorts of teapots put to different uses once past their usefulness. Doesn't take up anytime but is a little but of fun,

We came cross this lovely place accidentally when we visited Owaka. It is decorated uniquely with many types of teapots. No admission fee required except for little donation.

Only found this place by accident in passing but quite quirky and unusual. They do ask for donations not quite sure for what.

Sorry but this place looks and is like a rubbish tip with a few of the items that have been thrown away put up for display. Stopped, looked, drove away. Not worth getting out of the car for.

Quirky little stop, great place for us to stop and break up our trip through the Catlin's. Highlight for our children was the little dog named 'Lacey' what a sweet little thing she was. Donations welcome

You have to stop for a look! It's amazing all the different tea pots! Incredible, and colourful. Certainly a place with character, and livens up the street!
