Very interesting. Go in the summer or at least when the sun is shining to make the most of it. Even found out the history of the spooky house on the hill

It's an interesting attraction not too far from SH2. Although you need some time to truly understand all the mechanisms of the Stonehenge Aotearoa. You want the weather to be fairly good (at least not cloudy) and if you're into the whole new age-thing you're...More
