Fodor's Review

The largest outlet in New Zealand to showcase pounamu has greenstone cutting and carving areas, and an extensive shop. Two or more artists are usually at work, plus they offer two tours each day that relates the history of pounamu, its significance to the Māori people, and its uses. There's also a stone-painting artist at work here.
