Welcome Tours

Join this small group Discovery Day Trip from Kapiti to Foxton. Our first stop is at Otaki's quirky ShelShok Gallery. It's impossible not to enjoy the talent and humour displayed in Lynne's clever egg creations.

We'll have refreshments and a quiz at Levin's family park, then on to Tender Tips Asparagus for an opportunity to source fresh asparagus directly from the grower. In Foxton we'll visit the national Dutch museum Oranjehof, and De Molen (an authentic seventeenth century working windmill which has a great range of Dutch products for sale). The Dutch Oven cafe will take care of us for lunch with a variety of cabinet and menu food, including a number of tempting Dutch specialties.

After lunch we'll visit the Manawatu Estuary - host to a diverse range of wading and shore birds - and we'll take a tiki-tour around the Foxton beach settlement.

Pick up points: From 9.00 a.m. with return at approximately 4.30 p.m. There are pick up points in Paekakariki, Paraparaumu, Waikanae and Otaki.
