    In my opinion, it offers the best and the easiest reach urban hilltop view in New Zealand. It is so great to be able to drive up to the top, and you can choose to bike and walk up. Even though you don’t want to go up, you can still enjoy the view from the bottom of the hill (specifically from Craggy Range)

    It has amazing view and great spot for sunrise and sunset.

    If you would like to have light on the peak and ridge, you’d better go there in the morning or at latest early afternoon.

    Our stay in the Merlot cottage was superb. Rows of vines, beautiful sculptures, a bevy of quails, acorns and olive trees and tasty wines.

    Awesome place for families. Plenty of room to spread out. Clean place and really helpful staff. Kids loved the lazy river and slides.

    We had a stunning afternoon at this sandy beach with the locals. The water was clear and warm. Parking is a challenge. No food or drink options here.No rubbish collection so be a tidy Kiwi.

    If you are in the area and like locally produced products, this is well worth visiting. I was very impressed with the amount of stalls there and the selection of products available. If you do like coffee there are three options available but be prepared to queue. A number of stalls had ephos machines, which was great as I don’t carry cash. There is a lot of parking available and it didn’t take me long to find a space. Will definitely be back when in the area again

    Very knowledgeable host, excellent wines, magnificent setting. We were already a fan of the wines but have some new favorites to add to our buying list.

    A lovely short walk, worth the drive. Some great spots to watch the birds and enjoy the scenery. Not much in the way of facilities or shade.

    Lovely playground for children to have wet play and dry play. First time here. Noticed they had park staff supervising and watching children.

    Wonderful white sand and warm sea, in summer. A great place for my grandchildren to visit, the ones who like flat beaches with no rocks to explore.

    During our touring of the wine region, we stopped here to try their wines. We were greeted by the most pleasant woman who had a wonderful sense of humor and made our tasting experience that much better. We enjoyed several varieties, all of which were quite nice, but settled on a bottle of chardonnay.

    Such a neat spot to take younger children.

    We saw so many babies due to the time of year. The ducklings were only born the night before so it was pretty special to see them.

    Special shout our to the lady that works there. She was absolutely fantastic speaking to us about the different animals

    Pop in if you find yourself in the area.

    Nice Sunday listening to music and drinking sangria at Abbe Winery. Good pizza. We went on a busy day so a bit of a wait. Bean bags and tables to sit at in the shade so was good. Things for children to do.

    Delicious cider, a lovely day in the sun and great service!

    The food here is a little unconventional, you buy various items like cheese, crackers, potato chips and diy your own platter - but that adds to the charm.

    We had a tasting and tried all of the ciders. It was incredibly busy and there was only one staff member on but she did a wonderful job!
