Housed in a pretty historic cottage, Schoc Chocolates is a must for any chocolate lover. Award-winning Schoc is famous for its exotic flavour combinations and speciality chocolates. As you enter you are welcomed by a delectable chocolaty scent then your eyes are instantly drawn to the large glass cabinet brimming with handmade chocolates, just waiting for the choosing. The walls are lined with white, dark and milk chocolate tablets where you can sample a small piece from decorative wooden boxes. Schoc chocolate is a stunning place for that perfect Instagram shot.


Lime Tree Avenue

Lime Tree Avenue

Located at the south end of the cricket field in Kuratawhiti Street, the avenue of lime trees was planted in the memory of the districts soldiers who fought and fell in World War I. It’s a peaceful and serene spot where in spring the avenue becomes a mass of light green foliage.
