The walk will be conducted by a leading arborist with a commentary and will take approximately 3 hours. William Hall Arboretum is at the end of Currie Street (off Mt Sea Road, Parawai)

  Saint George's Traditional Evensong - 5.00pm

CLICK TO ENLARGE
Saint George's Church dates from the time when Thames, as a major goldfield, was the biggest population centre in the North Island. In the late 1860's and early 1870's a series of goldmining bonanzas brought prosperity to the town. Bishop Selwyn opened the Church on 28 January 1872 commenting that he considered it the foremost Church in the diocese. St. George's Church is a fine example of wooden neo-Gothic architecture, and has remained largely in its original condition. The robust exterior, with its touches of Gothic decoration, is complemented admirably by the elegant interior. (From 'Heritage New Zealand')
