If you love great coffee, creative art, retro clothing, artisan homewares, vinyl records or local stories, then there’s lots for you to explore at The Historic Village. 

Enjoy lunch in the cafe or one of the many garden nooks within the grounds. Strike up a conversation with one of the many retailers, artists or community volunteers working at The Historic Village to discover the stories behind this unique place and it’s people.

These wonderful character buildings house the galleries and shops of local artists, with classes and workshops. Many buildings are home to local community organisations and businesses.

Hire a unique venue for your wedding, meeting, workshop, or conference. The grounds can be hired for special events such as expos and festivals.

For history enthusiasts, you can see heritage displays in Faulkner House, and the Village Chapel. And make sure to visit the impressive mineral collection in the Gems shop; and Village Radio—Tauranga’s very own vintage station.

Free entry.

Grounds are open 7 days 8am – 10pm.

Retailers are open Tuesday to Saturday 10am – 3pm
