A full day in the region means you can enjoy the half day itinerary above and add on some extraordinary food and beverage experiences.
Leaving the National WOW Museum, you could take a group tour of the famed Pic's Peanut Butter World, watching as these much-loved peanuts are roasted, tumbled and squeezed into red star jars, ready to be shipped to peanut-butter lovers the world over. Alternatively, you could indulge in a tasting platter of artisan beer and cider at McCashins Brewery in the historic Rochdale Cider factory, kicking back to enjoy lunch in their sunny beer garden.
After marvelling at the works of the Moutere Artisans, why not taste all that is excellent about New Zealand wine, trailling from the rolling Moutere Hills back to the Waimea Plains? Each renowned for their distinctive sub-climate and terrior, famous brands like Neudorf Vineyards and Seifried Estate promise an indulgent, yet unique, cellar door experience.

Home to a range of quality restaurants, a sophisticated wine bar, a craft brewery, berry good real fruit icecream and famously fabulous fish and chips, you're all set for an evening by the waterfront watching as the sun descends across the horizon.
