They were completely engaged and amazed to find this huge stock trading event in the middle of town. You can get right in amongst the sheep, cattle and dogs, watch the auctioneers at work and see the locals buying their stock. Literally thousands of animals...More

Appeals to people with agricultural interests and also people who enjoy seeing something really different to the normal guided tour. The auctioneers perform well on sale days and it's a real operational stock sale - the largest saleyard in NZ well worth visiting
