One of New Zealand’s top heritage attractions is the Howick Historical Village. Located within easy reach of downtown Auckland, the village offers visitors a glimpse at how life once was for residents of Fencible village during the early years of European settlement in New Zealand. The third Sunday of each month, Howick transforms into a bustling community, including 30 volunteers in period costumes going about their day-to-day business. Opportunities crop up to see everything from cannon firing to a blacksmith in action and even a Victorian-style classroom.
You can cap off your perfect day of musing over New Zealand’s past with a visit to the Homestead Café for afternoon tea, or a dinner stop at the Bell House Restaurant. Also, the Village Shop offers a solid selection of retro toys and other items suitable for gifts and souvenirs.
