Heritage New Zealand properties Totara Estate and Clarks Mill in North Otago will be open free of charge as the country marks its national day, Waitangi Day, on 6 February.

The initiative is part of a nationwide open day involving 14 other Heritage New Zealand staffed properties.

Totara Estate, 8km south of Oamaru, is a historic farm that was the birthplace of New Zealand’s billion dollar frozen meat industry. Four kilometres away, at Clarks Mill, is the historic flour mill which houses working machinery inside impressive stone and timber buildings.

As a special feature for Waitangi Day at Totara Estate there will be an exhibition of New Zealand flags. This is a great chance to come and explore how flags have emerged and changed over the years.

Both properties are wonderful places to visit. They are real features of North Otago’s history and heritage, and popular visitor destinations. There is plenty of space to pack a picnic and make a day of it.

Tea and scones will be available to buy at Totara Estate.

The other Heritage New Zealand properties that will be open are Clendon House, the Kerikeri Stone Store, Kemp House, Mangungu Mission, Pompallier Mission and Printery and Te Waimate Mission House in Northland; Highwic and Alberton in Auckland; the Thames School of Mines; Old St Paul’s and Antrim House in Wellington; Fyffe House in Kaikoura, currently closed due to the 7.8 magnitude earthquake of 14 November; and Hayes Engineering Works and the Ophir Post Office in Central Otago.
