A rare opportunity to see re-enacted all indoors, a slice of an era long past, reminiscent of the evocative sights,sounds and smells of a time when horses were an essential part of our young nation. A time when the horse was king. A time when men, women, horses, bullocks and dogs worked tirelessly in changing the land. Horses and their role in New Zealand Society from beginning to our movie screens today.

A look at the startings of the deer industry in New Zealand. Lots of animals to see and touch and much much more for all the family. All indoors at the beautiful Ti Papa Special Events Center.
