Historic Mill Tours – Past, Present and Future in Action
Minimum Tour Cost $210 for up to 6 people
Additional Adults $35
Additional Children $25
(These prices are to cover our staff, safety regulations, stopping of mill production etc)
Alternatively you may visit our Gallery and look through the window to the past, while you shop – free of charge.
Mill Tours last approx 1 hour, depending on how long the group spends in the Gallery at the end, but the intro story is about 10 mins, the video about 5 mins and then the mill tour to see the historic looms in action about 25 mins, ending back in the gallery to purchase gifts to take home.
Large Group Tours – for times and prices, please phone or email us. We can run tours for private groups of up to 40 people.
Please note : This is an Historic Working Weaving Mill, so production needs to be stopped for the tour. It is fun, educational and interesting, so unique for every NZ Visitor or Local. The old machinery is fascinating to watch in production and these are six of the only looms of this era (1890’s) still working commercially in the world. These create incredible pieces of heirloom textiles, but you will see just how labour intensive the whole production is. From the yarn to the final product for sale. The visit to the Narnia Wardrobe, with video, shows the farm side of the production, so there is something for everyone. This is a standing tour with no seating, apart from while watching the video, so please make sure you are mobile enough to stand during the majority of the tour or have a walking aid if necessary to do the tour comfortably.
