The local primary school and kindergarten are attended by our grandchildren and are wonderful. Secondary schools are in either Greytown or Masterton.

Wineries are in abundance, the coast (either Tora or Ngawi) is 40 - 45 minutes drive away, there are plenty of good buggers around who love hunting, and the local golf, tennis and rugby clubs welcome new members with open arms. It really is a wonderful community to be part of.
