Bring your appetite when you come to Geraldine because you'll definitely want to sample some of this town's specialty local foods. Cheese, chocolate and the internationally recognised Barker's fruit products are just some of the tasty treats on offer. Also allow time to browse through the specialty shops selling gifts, New Zealand souvenirs, clothing and Maori arts.

Nestled at the foot of rolling downlands, Geraldine is where the country literally comes to town. Take a five-minute stroll from the busy main street and you'll arrive at Talbot Forest where you can amble along one of its many short bush walks and take in the breathtaking views of plains and mountains.

Geraldine town displays wonderful private gardens and gracious exotic trees planted by the early settlers tower over the streets.

The town is also becoming known as the place where a growing number of talented craftspeople and artists are choosing to live and work. Their art is on sale in the town or from nearby studios. The November Festival of Arts and Plants celebrates both the town's garden heritage plus its thriving craft scene.

There are three picturesque river gorges near Geraldine - Waihi, Orari and Te Moana, which have some of New Zealand's best picnic spots and swimming holes. There is also an excellent 18-hole golf course in Geraldine and the town is a good spot to try salmon fishing.

The Vintage Car and Machinery Museum has a fascinating collection of vintage vehicles dating back to 1905; its 1400-plus exhibits include tractors, vintage and veteran cars, farm machinery and a 1929 Spartan Biplane, the only one in New Zealand and possibly the world.

A drive through the beautiful rural countryside will take you to Peel Forest, which offers white-water rafting, mountain biking, 4WD, tramping or a leisurely walk. This popular recreation area has many tracks to explore.

Climb to the top of Mount Peel (Tarahaoa) or Little Mount Peel/Huatekerekere for amazing views over the Canterbury Plains. This beautiful forest contains fine examples of totara, hakikatea and matai and there is a camping ground, bushwalks and several scenic waterfalls. Look for the bellbirds, fantails, grey warblers and kereru (NZ pigeon) in the forest; native falcons also nest on the mountain.
