  • Tobacco

    The growth and production of tobacco brought wealth, jobs and growth to Motueka and was integral to the social fabric of the district for more than 70 years. There will be a permanent exhibition on tobacco at the Motueka Museum from mid-2009.
  • Ngatimoti War Memorial

    In June 1920 a Ladies Committee was formed by Mrs C.B.Brereton expressly to organise the building of a war memorial. The loss of the young men listed below would have represented a devestating blow to the people of this area, but the continued strength of community spirit was shown in the way that they all rallied to the support of the memorial project - a project of great personal significance for those families whose boys graves were so far from home.

  • Pupu Springs

    The freshwater springs are the largest cold water springs in the Southern Hemisphere2 and second only to the Antarctica’s Weddell Sea in clarity. Every second between 10,000 and 14,0003 litres of water are released from the springs, whose depth has never been accurately determined.
