Palmerston Campervan Hire Holiday
Palmerston is a town with a wealth of colonial buildings hailing from the old gold mining days. The town and surrounding countryside share many stories about those who came here seeking the gleam of gold and these, along with much information about the area’s past can be discovered on the Goldfields Heritage Trail.
Other attractions include hiking the Sir John McKenzie Trail to the summit of Puketapu for great views over the township, wandering through the aviaries of the Palmerston Butterfly and Bird Haven, and visiting Tavora Reserve at Bobby’s Head for the chance to spy upon penguins and seals.
Further inland from Palmerston is the Macraes Mine, a working mine pit where two-hour guided tours give a good insight into modern mining techniques.
