No matter where you travel, seek out the visitor centres so you do not miss out on any of the wonderful and quirky things the area has to offer. We were on our way to Halfmoon Bay and stopped to see what information there might be on the road beyond Halfmoon Bay. To our surprise there was a Wood Expo... More

We were going to the farmers market and came across the visitors centre. It is a visitors centre if you require local information. Nothing special but a source of information.
