Beautiful stuff BUT if they are asking for those big pine cones 35$ (the ones you find for free at Lake Pukaki) I wonder what else is overpriced. If you have some extra money on you worth a visit. They also have beautiful ornaments and jewellery made of Paua shells.

Very well presented and a wonderful collection of timber, jade, bone and shell artwork unfortunately no photo taking permitted. Certainly worth the stop

Worth stopping off at. The items are reasonably priced for the work that has gone into them. This shop is located right next door to the chocolate factory

These trees are amazing and massive. Although they were cut down years ago they are now protected and the wood they are using is from reclaimed trees which fell thousands of years ago. There is a staircase to the first floor carved from a trunk of wood. Amazing!

Definitely worth stopping in to check this lace out. We had a look in whilst in on our honeymoon and fell in love with a free-form swamp kauri bowl. It was a tad over budget and they offered us a 10% discount and even had it shipped home for us. Very friendly service and we are so pleased to have... More

This is definitely worth a visit. If you are kiwi or foreign. There are beautiful sculptures and wood that are very hard to source now. Don't miss the Kauri staircase. First place I have ever eaten a meat and kumara pie!

Simple beautiful craftsmanship of the native Kauri wood, plenty examples to suit every pocket, stunning pieces of highly polished kauri that would graze any wall in the home, well worth the visit , just wish we had more luggage space for some of the fine pieces on offer.

The lady who served me was really nice, very friendly and helpful. I bought an ornament and a small purse. There were many kauri wood items to buy from small ornaments to very large and ornate pieces. There were jewellery and trinkets too and the quality was good. The colour of the kauri wood I needed had to be quiet... More
