    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    As we live in the countryside and our children have a reasonably sheltered life from the outside world, we love having people from different cultures to become part of our family. My husband is involved in conservation and preservation work for DoC, TePapa Museum and other Museum's around NZ, so you can see and learn a lot about the Flora and Fauna of NZ.

    You get to take care for a wide variety of animals on the property. We have a wonderful rugged beach that is fun to explore and often you encounter seals and dolphins on your walks.
