Duration 7 hours

For our journey north, we are going to avoid the motorway and take a rural and picturesque drive up the coast to Puhoi. Our first port of call will be the Puhoi Valley Cheese Factory, enjoy morning tea in the cafe, see the range of dairy products available and perhaps make a purchase or two in the Shop. From the cafe, we can enjoy the view through the windows into the factory where they make the cheese, yoghurt, custards, etc. Leaving the Cheese Factory we will make our way to the Puhoi Heritage Museum. With our guided Tour, we will explore and learn about the unique history of Puhoi. It's Bohemian/Maori foundations from the 1860s to the present day. Our final destination on this adventure will be historic and iconic Puhoi Pub established in 1879. Enjoy a late lunch and absorb the history of this beautiful old building before we start our journey back to the North Shore.

Only 10 seats available for each tour. Call today to book your seat!
