Waimate sits between Timaru and Oamaru in the South Island. For centuries the area was a seasonal hunting camp for Maori; when European settlers arrived, Waimate became a saw-milling town. The majority of the town’s original Edwardian buildings are still standing, giving it a charmingly historic atmosphere. These days Waimate is a centre for livestock farming, berry growing and forestry. It also has a microclimate that produces excellent Pinot Noir- visit one of the local boutique wineries for a taste. As this region is centrally located in the South Island you may wish to visit the beautiful tourist town of Queenstown, Nelson or Franz Josef Glacier.
