across to the Kaimai Ranges from this private working sheep and beef farm.
After your tour there will be a picnic lunch waiting for you.
After lunch there will be an opportunity to purchase souvenirs before continuing on to Tirau to join your
coach for your return trip to Auckland arriving back at 4:30pm.
