Waimate's Silo Art
Painting is underway!
Waimate District’s mix of rugged rural countryside and rich history provides you plenty of choices for day trips while you base yourself in town or country.
Waimate’s past as a food-gathering hub for Maori, and later as a frontier milling town on the edge of the forest is easy to connect with by following self-guided walks and visiting the district’s historic sites. The further you go, the more you’ll know! Moa, rock art, sawmilling, churches, and great characters are all part of our story.
