Lawrence was home to New Zealand's most successful early provincial brewery - Simpson & Hart's Black Horse label, operating from Weatherston's at the east side of town.

Although the Hart's Black Horse Brewery closed in 1923, and little but ruins remain today, the site is also famous for another attraction - its daffodils.

Starting in 1895, the Hart family planted thousands of specially-imported daffodil bulbs around the 25-acre site. This became a huge popular destination in the spring - in its heyday, special trains were laid on from Dunedin.

Many of the varieties present are now rare and of special scientific interest; uncounted other varieties have cross-pollinated over the past century and present a stunning display when they flower. The site also boasts a beautiful woodland garden, a waterfall, a vintage rhododendron forest and many other rare plant species.

The site is now open for a limited time while the daffodils are in bloom. All welcome - bring a picnic or enjoy a tea and scone.
