Founders Heritage Park
Lonely Planet review for Founders Heritage Park
Two kilometres from the city centre, this park comprises a replica historic village with a bakery, chocolatier and museums. It makes for a fascinating wander, which you can augment with a visit to the onsite Founders Brewery & Café, NZ’s first certified organic brewery, where you can get brunch and wood-fired pizza. Tastings are $10; a 'backpacker special' grants park entry plus a tasting of three beers for $12.
