Sweet deal for heritage tourists

MEDIA RELEASE

Sweet deal for heritage tourists

Visitors to NZ Historic Places Trust properties in Northland are enjoying a sweet summer deal.

The NZHPT’s Passport to History is currently on sale at Northland properties, catering to the influx of travelers taking a break over summer.

The Passport is a concession ticket that provides entry to all the NZHPT properties in Northland for a reduced rate - $20 per adult, and children free.

“That’s the equivalent of five places for the price of two, which is great value for money – particularly for families wanting to explore the extraordinary history of Northland,” says the NZHPT’s Northern Destinations Manager, Natalie McCondach.

Passport-holders can take a tour of Kemp House, New Zealand’s oldest building, and enjoy a unique heritage shopping experience at the Stone Store or a snack at the fantastic riverside Honey House Cafe.

They’ll also be able to experience some hands-on fun at Pompallier Mission in Russell with its pre-Industrial Revolution printery – and visit Te Waimate, where the beginnings of European farming began in New Zealand.

“A 45-minute drive from Te Waimate then takes people on to Clendon House and Māngungu Mission in the Hokianga – both amazing heritage experiences in their own right,” says Natalie.

Valid for 12 months from date of issue, Passports can be bought at all NZ Historic Places Trust properties in Northland.

“We’re proud to be able to offer people the opportunity to experience some of the best of Kiwi heritage at this very special rate,” she says.

Full membership of the NZHPT, which starts from as little as $45, offers free entry to all NZHPT properties throughout New Zealand and to hundreds of overseas historic places as well.
