Croydon Aviation Heritage Centre

Scenic Flights in Gore

Aircraft from the 1930s and '40s are lovingly restored and showcased within Croydon Aviation's hangar, 16km northwest of Gore on SH94 (towards Queenstown). But that's just a taster of life in the air: you can also book a flight in a two-seater 1930s Tiger Moth biplane or other wee aircraft (from $150 for 15 minutes). A restored steam railway runs once a month on open days (adult/child $5/2.50).

There's a stylish cafe and gift store attached to the aviation centre.
